Students participated in four 45 minutes during the day.
During the day all children participating had the chance to bat, bowl and field.
Students had fun during the day both on and off the field with many children dancing to the music, making for a party atmosphere.
"The day was a great success," Mr Curtis said.
There were many close games on the day with one game coming down to just one run.
Monto State School will now have the opportunity to play against other schools at Yandina.
