Boynewood students explore big city

BOYNEWOOD State School students have spent four fun-filled days exploring the big city of Brisbane for their annual camp.

From visiting the Ekka to the Gallery of Modern Art and even watching one of the outback spectacular shows, it was a weekend to remember for the Boynewood students.

Principal Hayley Kardash said the children were all well behaved and thought it was a huge success.

"We had a busy schedule over the four days as we left to Brisbane on Tuesday and went to Strike Bowling in Wintergarden, followed by the science centre, GOMA, lunch in South Bank and then we caught the City Cat to New Farm Park,” Ms Kardash said.

"That afternoon we travelled to Outback Spectacular and came back to Brisbane that evening.”

On Thursday the students got to experience the Ekka where the horses and dog show were some of the favourites.

"The kids got to see lots of different shows, we saw high diving in a tank, a motorbike trail show and the Holden Brazilian driving team,” she said.

The camp finished on Friday, where the students visited Mount Coot-tha for breakfast.

Ms Kardash said she thanked the many volunteers who helped ensure the event was a success.
