Celebration Update – November 2020

The plans for Foundation Day Assembly are nearly all complete. Unfortunately to be Covidsafe, and as our school hall is so small, we can only have in attendance a small number of invited guests and our year 5 and 6 students. We are planning on live-streaming the event to other classrooms, and recording it for future use.

The School Song composed for the centenary celebrations by Yeronga teachers, Harry
Brewer and Ray Thomasson, has been resurrected this year, as our students have been practicing it ready for next year’s celebrations. The Senior Choir will be leading the singing at Foundation Day Assembly. Do you remember how it goes?

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony…
Another change to our plans to be Covid-safe is that we are now “cutting the ribbon” rather than “cutting a cake”. We have invited our most senior member of the Alumni, Mr Len Ipson to join with our youngest prep student (yet to be identified), to cut ribbons between the front gate at our historical entry on Park Road signifying the beginning of our special sesquicentennial year. If you have any floristry ribbon experience, and could help prepare a ribbon bouquet, please contact me – jbenn293@eq.edu.au

Yours in Celebration, Jennifer Bennett
Community Relations Officer | Yeronga 150 Committee
