THE race that stops a nation even had eyes in Gindie glued to the screen.
Students from Gindie State School dressed in racing colours and took time out to watch the historic Melbourne Cup.
After the main event the children, along with teachers and parents, carried on the festivities and enjoyed fun horse races of their own.
Galaxy of great books
GINDIE State School students went on an intergalactic mission to unearth great reading material during a book fair held recently.
With the theme A Galaxy of Books, children used their creative skills to help transform the school's library into a space which was out of this world.
While fostering the students' love of reading, the school greatly benefited from the book fair with the addition of many new exciting books for its growing library.
