It Was Fun
Having been months in the planning, the weather was perfect for a night of outdoor fun and entertainment. The school oval was packed with families all enjoying the night. The younger children enjoyed their own ‘Play Zone’ with a cosy coupe car track and there was a giant inflatable ‘Pirate Ship Slide’ and ‘Obstacle Course’ that kept them busy all night. The older children, loved the ‘Gladiator Duel’ game and tried their skill on the ‘Bullride’.
The Balloon Pop was really popular and bargains were had from the market stalls while there was plenty of food to be bought in our very own ‘Eat Street’. Entertainment came from our School Choir and our music students.
A big hit on ‘Side Show Alley’ was the ‘Ghost House’. Made during the week by Stage 3 and their parents the ‘House’ was very scary with the ‘scare’ being provided by students who took their ‘scary’ roles very seriously!
The highlight of the night was the culmination of the ‘Bullride Competition’. Over the last few weeks, the people of Kyogle, staff and students have been kindly donating money to see who they would like to ride the mechanical bull! Councillor Hayden Doolan, Principal Tony Hunter and Teacher Laura Hughes all had ‘volunteered’ to ride the bull if they raised the most money! Hayden raised the most and lasted 22 seconds before he was ‘bucked’ off. Coming under pressure from his students though, Mr Hunter also had a turn as did Miss Hughes! The crowd loved it.
Thank you to everyone in Kyogle who came out to support the School and to the sponsors and businesses who donated prizes for the chocolate wheel and raffle!
