Students dress up for Wintersun

LITTLE rockers ’n’ rollers warmed up for the Wintersun long weekend yesterday with a dress up and dance competition at Pacific Coast Christian School.

The Tweed Heads South campus came alive to a 1950s and ’60s buzz when 85 students from preschool to Year 6 put on their leather jackets and frilly dresses to get into the spirit.

Principal Dr Tina Lamont said it was a great way to begin the long weekend.

“We had a parade where the students had to dress up in their best rock ’n’ roll outfits. We had a prize for the best male dressed and best female dancer,” Dr Lamont said.

She said parents also joined in by taking part in the Nutbush dance with their kids.

“Everyone had such a great time, they really enjoyed it. The parents thought it was a fantastic way to start the Wintersun weekend,” she said.

“Even at the start of the day the kids just couldn’t wait to get out and dance.” Dr Lamont said Wintersun was well-loved in the Tweed.

“There is a real energy when it’s on. We noticed that with the kids. It brought a lot of joy to them. They loved getting out in the sun for some good, clean, healthy fun. It was a great way to get ready for Wintersun.”
