This time around the winner was one of the teachers, who kindly passed on her prize to one of the school mums who is expecting her sixth child. What a nice thought, and what a great fundraising idea.

Arty students awarded

CONGRATULATIONS to Gympie Show prize winners for their collage and picture-making skills.

First prize winner was Emily Brantz in the picture making section, with Maya Beinke winning second in this section, and Cody Hethorn winning third.

Highly commended were Kade Coleman, Felicity Currie, Bella Prior, Lachlan Julius, Ruby Speed and Coby Tuton.

In the collage section, Imogen Bruce-Moore won a second prize and Charlie Kingsley won third.

The art works, some of which are pictured (right) each featured our ocean life. They are bright and positive, just like the students at Rainbow Beach State School.
