Mackay and Whitsunday Life

A Tee-Rific End To School Holidays

Close off your school holidays in style with a special child friendly Come and Try Golf Day which is open to all families across the region.

This event is the first time Cannonvale State School P&C and Whitsunday Green have come together to create a special day of this type, and P&C President, Sabrina Mitchell, says she is hoping it could become annual.

All proceeds from the event are directed straight back into Cannonvale State School and will be used to purchase E reader pens.

These clever devises help children with dyslexia or other learning difficulties understand what they have written, as the pen speaks the written words out loud.

Any additional money raised will be given to the school sports department and used to buy new equipment for all the children to enjoy.

During the day, families and other groups are welcome to sign-up to the Ambrose Competition in order to be in the running for some terrific prizes.

There will also be trophies and prizes for participants placed in first, second or third place.

KC’s Bar and Grill are a major sponsor of the event and will be on-site with food and drink throughout the day.

There will also be live entertainment over lunch.

A range of raffle prizes are there to be won, with some lucky winners receiving meat trays by Master Butchers and speciality platters from Fishi Seafood.

For those not playing golf, there is free face painting throughout the day, and the bar is also open for food and drinks.

If you wish to become an event sponsor please contact Sabrina through the school.
