Gympie West's hardest-working students honoured

GYMPIE recording artist Linc Phelps presented Gympie West State School's Aussie of the Month award recipients with their certificates and medals on a special parade recently.

Linc spoke to the students about trying hard in school and working hard to achieve your dreams.

He said he was very fortunate to be able to do what he loves.

A school spokeswoman said students and staff were then lucky to have Linc sing for them.

"He told everyone that now he was in charge so we could all get up and dance on parade," she said.

"Linc sang the song from The Shrek movie, I'm a Believer.

"What a great parade. Thanks again, Linc, for coming."
