Colourful creations at Jindabyne Central

IT was a sea of colour as Jindabyne Central School's (JCS) youngest students proudly displayed their craft creations at the Easter Hat Parade.

All students from Kindergarten to Year Two paraded before parents, teachers and the rest of the primary school last Thursday to show off their hat designs.

Rowdy Rabbit made his way from Thredbo to join in the fun and help draw the Easter raffle, with 32 baskets full of chocolate and toys up for grabs.

Relieving principal Debbie-Lee Hughes thanked students and parents for the effort they had put in to making the hats.

"I wish you all a safe and happy Easter and thank you for a great start to the school year," she said.

Winners of the school library's Easter colouring competition were also announced at the parade.

JINDABYNE Central School (JCS) students hit the dance floor recently to raise money for Year Six's end-of-primary school celebrations.

About 250 JCS primary school students teased or greased their hair, donned bracelets, headbands and even a few leg warmers for the 1980s theme disco held in the school hall.

Money raised from the $2 entry fee and food sales will go towards the Year Six end-of-year dinner and their camp to Sydney in May.

Year Six students voted on the theme for the disco and student Samson Old organised the music.

"We'd like to thank the school community, parents and teachers for their participation and helping us make the disco a success," JCS primary school captain Molly Robinson said.

While children bopped on the dance floor, parents were invited to a P&C meet and greet evening in the school library.

Jindabyne Central School Parents and Citizens Association is hoping to boost its membership numbers for 2014, with the $10 membership fee going towards the purchase of books for the end-of-year school presentation assembly.
