MISTAKE Creek has been busy! The Brigalow Cluster Camp to Canberra, which included Kilcummin, Mistake Creek and Coppabella State School, was from June 24-28.

Students went to Parliament House, Royal Australian Mint, the War Memorial, Perisher Ski Resort, Questacon, Mt Ainslee Lookout and the Australian Institute of Sport.

This camp was made possible because of funding from PACER.

Youth Lit Festival

DURING the first week back in term three we went on another camp to the Whitsunday Voices Youth Literature Festival, held at the Whitsunday Anglican School in Mackay.

This wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for the Winchester Foundation supporting country children like ours so they can experience such a delightful festival.

School camp was lots of fun.
