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.
