Cir­cus fun great for our un­der-eights

Whitsunday Times - - KIDS -

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.
