Christmas concert and art auction at Townview State School Mount Isa

Townview State School transformed itself into a tinsel laden snowy Christmas town for its end of year festival on Wednesday, November 29.

Each class took turns on stage to perform a Christmassy number set to music, on the pavilion stage in the courtyard at Clarke Street.

One group of students had been planning a festive surprise all term to wow their fellow students, in the form of an energetic breakdown to a medley of dance pop bangers.

The festival was attended by students, staff, and many proud and amused parents.

The deputy Principal said all the students had contributed to the dances, and had been rehearsing hard.

In a neighbouring room at the school there is a silent art auction for colourful pieces made by students throughout the year.

Featuring Bendy Wendy the giant giraffe, royal blue peacock of hands, a stunning collaborative patchwork piece, and many more impressively artistic endeavours (more photos online), which parents and visitors bid on in secret.
