Parents of students at Mooroopna Park Primary School received an early Father's Day treat on Friday, with a big breakfast at the school.By Rhiannon Gavalakis
Baked beans, bacon and eggs and vegemite on toast made up a fun-filled Father’s Day breakfast at Mooroopna Park Primary School on Friday.
Dads, mums and grandparents gathered at the school for the morning event, with about 50 families attending.
Principal Hayden Beaton said it was fantastic to see the school flourish and the families come together.
‘‘It’s good to get everyone together and the parents into the school,’’ Mr Beaton said.
‘‘It’s great to see some new faces here and they can have something to eat and look at the classrooms and where the children learn.
‘‘The kids absolutely love it.’’
Mr Beaton said a Father’s Day stall was also held, where students could buy a gift for dad, grandpa or someone special.
Year 3 student Keara Devine, 9, said she loved her dad because he made her laugh.
‘‘He’s funny and playful, I love having him around,’’ she said.
Keara said she hand-made a gift and planned on serving her dad breakfast in bed — if he was awake.
Fellow student Nhykira Mansfield, 8, said Father’s Day was extra special, as it was her sister’s birthday as well.
‘‘We are going ten pin bowling to celebrate,’’ she said.
Mr Beaton said the strong school community was particularly great to see, as the school had faced closure last year.
‘‘We are going really well and numbers are right up, some people may still think we are at risk of closing, but we’re not,’’ he said.
‘‘We’re up and about, we’ve got some great new programs and we’re looking forward to a bright future.’’
