Circus fun great for our under-eights
FORGET The Great Moscow Circus, Cannonvale State School brought its own circus to town on Friday.
The school’s hall and fields transformed into every kid’s dream – a wonderland with pretty much everything on offer.
A grand old pirate adventure was taking place in the Prep headquarters, while the fields were a sea of pitched tents, with everything from face painting to making fairy bread on offer.
Netted football goals were turned into mad scientist labs and the children’s big belly laughs could be heard from miles away.
Inside the hall was a “chill out zone” if children wanted to take a break from all the fun and opt for a book instead.
In the opposite corner, children were walking away with animal balloons and in the other, the Whitsunday PCYC supplied a safety obstacle course.
Teachers were barely recognisable, dressed as clowns, mad scientists and pirates.
Special visitors included the firies, ambos, Fauna Rescue Whitsundays and State Emergency Service.
Children squealed as their sirens roared and were all too eager to sit in the driver’s seat or wear part of the uniform.
FUN IN THE SUN: Sam McNally, Beau McNicoll, Jeffrey Gabor, Oliver Dromgold (back), James Miller and Zachary Gould (front), all aged 7, had a blast at Under 8’s Day.
