Anthony Collier, Principal at the Leongatha Campus, described this year’s Expo as a roaring success that was enjoyed by people of all ages.
‘The evening was an excellent opportunity for the school community to celebrate what a special place Chairo is,’ said Mr Collier, ‘but also a great way to showcase the school to the wider local community.’
Pioneers Hall was transformed into a vibrant exhibition centre, with displays showcasing a wide variety of subjects, including maths, science, primary classes, history, English, French, art, library, wood technology, agriculture, physical education and music.
In addition, information was available regarding camps, careers, chaplaincy, playgroup, VCAL and VCE, the production of Peter Pan Jnr being staged in September, the popular buddy program that operates at the campus and more. A free community barbecue was also provided.
Primary teacher Katelyn I’Anson said: ‘As a first year teacher at Chairo, I loved being involved in my first Expo. It was wonderful to see the students and their families come together to socialise and celebrate being a part of such a warm and loving school community. The staff members all worked really hard to create a fun and welcoming environment for people of all ages, and there were a range of activities available for everyone to participate in.’
