School’s out for summer in Rockhampton

THERE were cheers all round yesterday afternoon as school bells signalled the beginning of holidays for Glenmore Primary School captains Jorja Quinn, Geustavo Almeida and Deakin Geebung.

The three Year 6 students celebrated in style with a free dress day, a friendly game of dodgeball and the annual task of cleaning out the classroom.

The second indigenous Glenmore school captain in 129 years, Deakin said he was both happy and sad.

"I will be the only one from my school going to St Brendan's," he said.

"I am excited to have a break but I'm still going to miss the school."

Geustavo said he was looking forward to catching up with friends over the school holidays.

"Next year we will all go to high school and we won't get to see all of our friends again," he said.

"On a scale from one to 10 of how happy I am to be finished, I would say 23."

Jorja was mostly excited to visit Australia Zoo over the break after working hard all year.

"My least favourite part at school was doing all the work but my friends are my favourite part of school," she said.

Geustavo decided an all-boys pool party would be the perfect way to finish school and Jorja thought a girls sleepover was a great way to kick off the holidays.
