Kids ready for holiday fun

WHEN the bell rings at three o'clock this afternoon, school students across the town will officially be on holidays - and they could not be more excited.

Central State School kids spent their second-last day of school singing, dancing, skipping and everything in between, at their end of year concert.

There were tutus, Santa hats, recorders, skipping ropes and earfuls of laughter as prep to year 7 students gathered in the undercover area to flaunt their performing skills - which even involved throwing water balloons at one of the teachers.

Year 4 student Katurah Heise said she could not wait to begin her holidays.

"I like it because you don't have to come to school and do school work," Katurah said.

Katurah said she would be able to play with her two kittens and go swimming, play basketball and make pom-poms.

Year 3 classmate Mai-lee Connors said she was excited to have sleepovers during her time off.

"And you don't have to do work!" Mai-lee said.

Both girls performed "Nuttin' for Christmas" at the concert with their Year 3/4 class.

With Christmas less than three weeks away, prep students donned their Santa hats and performed the Australian 12 Days of Christmas.

Other preps twirled and pirouetted around the stage performing "Sugar Plum Fairies", where even the boys flaunted bright tutus to get in the spirit.
