It’s been a jam-packed week at Port Douglas State School this week.
Wednesday night was the annual Art and Learning Expo. This is a fantastic opportunity for the school community to get together, albeit in a slightly different COVID-safe environment than usual.
The evening commenced with a dance performance by Year 5 and 6 students, followed by parents and students going through displays of student art and learning projects undertaken both at school and during home based learning.
These displays showed what a talented bunch the Port Douglas State School children are!
Thursday saw Port Douglas students from Years 3 to 6 participate in their first ever AFL Queensland Schools Cup.
It was an intense day with the Port team winning all three games in their pool and going straight through to the Grand Final, where they lost to Edge Hill State School.
Well done to all players for a wonderful effort.
Friday morning, students were fortunate enough to have a sneak peak at the “Gravity and Other Myths” performance that is playing in Port Douglas over the weekend.
There were lots of ooohhhs and aaaarrrrhhhs and some comments from children about wanting to become circus performers.
We did place a disclaimer on the performance, that it was presented by trained performers and stunts should not be performed at home or school.
Next week we have our Colour Fun Run and District Gala Day to look forward to.
What a great way to end the term, and to start school holidays!
