Our website may be the first point of contact for information about our wonderful school, but there is nothing quite like exploring the real thing. Please contact us and we would be delighted to arrange a time to show you around.
We had a wonderful afternoon on Friday with the PACKMAG staff from Cairns. They have produced a promotional video for us which is shown below. The ladies were very impressed with our school and particularly with our students. Thanks to the P and F ladies who looked after the bar-b-que and to our wonderful teachers who stayed late to help. The disco gave some of our students the opportunity to showcase their amazing moves. Glen in Year 5 was a true star on the stage as were the McDonnell boys and their mother. The winner of the lucky door prize was the Bell family.
We are all really looking forward to the Evelyn Fun Sports Day on Friday. This year, we have decided to take the whole school to the event. All children will have the opportunity to participate; be it sprints, relays or ballgames. As you are aware, the whole structure of school sport has changed in 2019 and this carnival no longer feeds into the Peninsula trials as has been the case in the past. We, (Millaa Millaa, Mt Garnet and Ravenshoe State School) all agreed that we should have a carnival regardless. Evelyn Sport has been a part of our tradition for a long time. I can still recall coming last in my sprints when I was a student at Millaa Millaa. Thanks to Carole for her great organisation.
