Drumbeat performance tops off school awards night
A NIGHT of success and celebration at Gayndah State School's annual awards night was topped off by a drumbeat presentation that reverberated sound through the iconic town hall last night.
The Year 5 students performance, led by school chaplain Lexie Callahan and teacher aide Deb Stallan, exemplified the hard work of the school's students and staff, working together, throughout the year.
"Drumbeat uses drumming on African Drums to develop resilience and understand emotions,” teacher Leah Trott said.
Students were recognised for the academic and sporting abilities and acknowledged for their citizenship and hard work.
Lucy Griggs and Shelby Driver took on the role of school captains for 2019.
"It was a beautiful night celebrating successes, effort and accomplishments,” Mrs Trott said.
