Fun after the floods

A COMMUNITY Flood Recovery Party, hosted by the Mt Tarampa State School was the perfect excuse for residents to get together and unwind after the devastation of the floods.

Around 200 people turned up on the night with those that attended enjoyed a sausage sizzle and entertainment by local musicians, including Principal Di Pedersen.

The event had something for everyone with adults having the chance to chat with their neighbours and enjoy the dance party and the younger ones enjoying the play centres filled with activities.

Event organiser, Di Pedersen wanted to give something back to the community after the devastation of the floods.

“The people in our community have been through a lot and we wanted to give them something where they could forget about their worries and just have fun,” she said.

“Talking to the people who came to the night, that objective was achieved.

“The positive comments and response has been overwhelming.”

Mrs Pedersen said staff from the school and P&C members helped with the night.

“It was wonderful to see so many people from the community in attendance who weren't directly associated with the school,” she said.

“Events like these help to bring communities closer together.”

Both Mt Tarampa State School classes performed songs on the night as well as one of the parents, Brad Priggins, who gave an impromptu performance of Lights on the Hill.
