Huge year of achievement for Mundubbera students

THE hard-working students of Mundubbera were recently recognised for their work and perseverance.

Mundubbera State P-10 held its annual awards night on November 7 at the Marg Kelly Hall, celebrating individual achievements, partnered with live performances and displays of work.

Principal Peter Townsend was impressed by the talents displayed by his students, with prizes covering several sections.

“This allows a variety of students to demonstrate their individual strengths across different categories,” Mr Townsend said.

“Academic, cultural, musical, sporting and community focused awards are part of our night, and we are very proud of the industry shown by the students at Mundubbera State P-10.”

One of their stand out performances of the year was by school captain Emma Whelan in year 10.

“She received a number of awards and needs to be congratulated on her efforts and commitment throughout the year.”

The night included some words of praise for Business Manager Lyn Serisier, who is leaving the school after 45 years of service.

“She started here in 1975 progressing through the ranks, and has seen the passage of 13 principals, hundreds of staff and thousands of students.

“She will be missed dearly, and will leave big shoes to fill.”
