 Students Celebrate Achievements at Term 2 Parade
(Story written by Mrs Judi Chatwood Media Liaison Officer Blackbutt State School)
A special celebration parade to mark a successful second term was held this week at Blackbutt State School.
The school hall buzzed with activity as students, their parents and carers, family members and visitors, enjoyed the hour-long parade.
The parade started with the presentation of a $200 cheque to Bonny Heit from the Kingaroy RSPCA. Another $142 was raised from a free dress day, taking the total to $342.
Year 4 students Christian Marks and Jakson Holmfield presented the cheque to Ms Heit after being the highest-donating students with 215 and 154 Buzz Buttons respectively.
Class teachers then presented Platinum Behaviour Certificates to the school’s best-behaved students.
Platinum Certificates were awarded to students for consistently following school rules, showing exceptional behavior inside and outside the classroom, being responsible for their own behavior and learning, demonstrating a great work ethic, showing respect for themselves and others, and for being a good friend and classmate.
Students who achieved Gold Behaviour Certificates were asked to stand in front of the parade, receiving a round of applause from the audience.
Principal Mrs Gayle Williamson presented special certificates to students with an attendance record of between 98% and 100% during term.
“These students have been high attenders at school this term and every minute counts towards their education,’’ she said.
Those who earned the most Buzz Buttons during the term also were acknowledged.
The Readers’ Cup team received certificates for a great effort in last week’s regional Readers’ Cup competition in which they scored 38 points to the winning team’s 42.5 points.
In Newcombe, The Lion Tamers were triumphant in the strongly contested Year 4-6 lunch-time sport final against the Magicians.
Kendall House Sport Captains Mathew McAuliffe and Chanel McGregor-Crase collected the house trophy for Kendall which scored a mighty 20,312 points to beat rivals Lawson.
A Platinum party was held later in the week, with students enjoying their choice of ice-cream with syrup and sprinkles – all dished up by staff members. It was followed by a Champions’ BBQ featuring lots of tasty treats.
