School’s back

MONDAY marked day one of the 2022 school year for majority of students across Queensland, with kids packing their lunches, books and masks this year as they enter classrooms.


Amelia Hill (grade 4), Ben Foster (grade 3) and Sorrasak Fisher (grade 2) with Principal David King on their first day back at Biboohra State School on Monday.

Biboohra State School Principal, David King said he was excited to see all students, new and old, coming back for the new year. 

“We are super excited to have everyone back – the kids are the heart of the school and without them it’s not really the same,” he said. 

“We had a few kids come in during the two-week break, but we have really missed the others as well and their laughs and their chatting. 

“It is amazing how much of an impact a few students can make on our little school.” 

Biboohra State School will start the year off strong, continuing with their community garden and mural projects, as well staff undertaking the new programs to improve teaching skills.
