Tara kids kick up their heels

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

THE clap­ping of thunder only added to the mu­si­cal mer­ri­ment kick­ing off at the an­nual Tara Shire State Col­lege P&C Bush Dance.

On the evening of Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 12, fam­i­lies gath­ered in the sports hall to wit­ness stu­dents don their danc­ing shoes and give the ol’ bush dance their best shot.

P&C pres­i­dent Kate Mam­mino-Walker said it was a hap­pier oc­ca­sion for the Tara com­mu­nity.

“It was a re­ally great night es­pe­cially for the com­mu­nity to get to­gether in times that have been pretty tough for us,” she said.

“Our lovely bush caller, Mrs Beryl Ben­nett, went around for a few weeks lead­ing up to the night and taught all the chil­dren, in each grade level, their own dance.

“They had the op­por­tu­nity to show their fam­ily the dances and later on in the night the fam­i­lies joined in with a bit of line danc­ing.”

A bar­be­cue pre­ceded the danc­ing, with a multi-draw raf­fle of do­nated prizes al­low­ing many to go home with a grin.

“All the funds will go to­wards the P&C con­tin­u­ing to pro­vide as­sis­tance to the chil­dren where we can,” Ms Mam­mino-Walker said.
