MUNDUBBERA kindergarten students Blair, Isabella and Grace are looking forward to the Christmas holidays after a very busy year of activities.

With Christmas less than three weeks away, the kids will be holding their end of year break-up on Thursday night and will be resuming school on January 22.

Grace said she'll be catching up with friends and family over these school holidays.

"I'm going to have a lot of fun,” Isabella said.

"I'm also going to practice how to write my homework.”

Co-director of the Mundubbera Kindergarden Benita Littleton said the kindy had good enrolments this year.

"We've had a busy year,” Mrs Littleton said.

"We've had good enrolments, we have a majority of children going onto school next year.”

Mrs Littleton said the kindy had a supportive committee who helped ensure everything ran smoothly.

"They're all volunteers and they've done a good effort keeping the kindy functioning, without our volunteers none of this would've been possible,” she said.

The kindergarden has held several events throughout the year with the art show making one of the highlights.

"In the middle of the year we have an art show at the local gallery and it went well,” Mrs Littleton said.

"The highlight of the year is having people in the community who think about the kindy and support us whether it be bringing in some collage items or some organisation that says here's a donation to the kindy.”

The kindy wished parents a safe holiday.

"I'd like to ... thank the many community supporters.”
