Under 8s Day fun

Prep to Year 2 students recently participated in Under 8s Day, with this year's event marking 60 years of Under 8 celebrations across Queensland.

The weather was fantastic, and a large number of parents and younger siblings also participated in the morning.

Students engaged in eight different activities including a disco, construction, bubble blowing, sandpit activities, origami, obstacle course, painting and giant tubs of slime.
