Mums set to kick up their heels
WITH Queensland schools' P&C Day coming up on Friday, May 25, Gympie West State School P&C has been inspired to get in early and organise a Mother's Day family dance to give all the mums in the Gympie community a real treat.
Live music with Brisbane band Homestead (including Gympie West principal Bob Cole), kids' entertainment (from Andrew Stokes), a light supper and lucky door prizes are all included in this great value family evening to be held on Saturday, May 12, from 7-11pm in Hamilton Hall at Gympie State High School.
Pre-purchased tickets are available from Gympie West State School office (adults $10, school aged children $5) with ticket entry available on the night (adults $15, children $10).
Gympie West State School P&C life member Kay Boody, has been a driving force at the school for over three decades but she is not one to sit back and rest on her laurels.
Her tireless efforts in helping make Gympie West State School the best it can be for its students is evident in her passion to contribute behind the scenes in big and small fundraising ventures.
Gympie West P&C treasurer Cathy Newcombe has also been a hard-working committee member for more than 25 years and has been instrumental in delivering the first phase of the "cooling our classrooms" air-conditioning initiatives for Gympie West students.
Also on the organising team are former Gympie West students and dedicated P&C members Amanda Jensen, Denise Alexander, Linda Pearce and Toni Thoroughgood who epitomise the spirit of the Gympie West State School P&C.
