Great fun for little ones at the Big Morning Out
IT WAS a day full of fun in the sun at Proserpine State School last Thursday morning for the Big Morning Out.
Kids under eight came from all over the Whitsundays to go wild, with littlies from as far away as Hamilton Island State School taking part.
The kids got to play with an original typewriter at the hands-on historical display, wear a bulletproof jacket thanks to local police officers and even make their own goop.
The day was made a stunning success thanks to a great community effort, with the school’s Year 6 students working on the many stalls.
Proserpine State School Kennedy house sports vicecaptain Chloe Forsyth said a great time was had by all.
“They were like ‘Oh, what’s that! Oh, let’s go do that!’,” she said. “It was pretty funny.” Chloe was given the job of painting faces and said the most popular was “probably the princess”.
“I had to do a crown on their head,” she said.
However, she said the best part of the day was “mainly just seeing all the kids having fun”.
Cook house sports captain Ashton Sinnott was perhaps the most forthcoming when asked what he enjoyed most about the event.
“Getting out of class,” he said.
It was not all fun and games though, with Ashton put in charge of the fence painting station.
“I had to fill up the spray bottles and put up the paper so they could draw on it and stuff,” he said.
FAST FUN: Hamilton Island State School students Charlie Harvey and Zarah O'Kane got to sit in a police car at Proserpine State School's Under 8’s Day.
