Banora students thrilled by games

MARBLES, elastics and tricycles were among the games of yesteryear students at Banora Point Public School played last week.

Principal Dean Files said staff and stage-one students dressed up and held an historic day as the culmination of their “The Way We Were” study.

“The HSIE unit of work they had been doing was an historical perspective; they looked at the changes in things such as telecommunications, transport and clothing,” Mr Files said.

“As part of this unit we had a dress-up day where students and teachers came dressed in clothes from days past.

“Students then took part in 'olden-day' activities and games and we had a wonderful day which I am sure will be remembered for many years to come.”

Year one student Josie said: “We had to dress up in olden-day clothes. First we did our spelling. Then we went to Mrs Germany's room and saw Mrs Corby's old toys. Later we played elastics, marbles, dodge ball and red lion. It was fun.”

Fellow year one student Silas said: “First our teacher showed us some old stuff. It was really amazing. I liked the tricycle best. Later we played old games. One was Red Lion. When the home bell went we went home. It was a beautiful day.”
