Mackay and Whitsunday Life

School Of The Year

It’s that time of year again when we are giving one local school in Mackay and the Whitsundays $10,000!

Jake and I have had the best time getting out to visit so many local schools who have entered to win.

For me personally it has been a chance to have a sticky beak at which school I might enrol my kids in.

With my daughter off to kindy next year I can’t believe I’m already at the stage of having to think about school.

Feels like only yesterday I was competing in hunger games for a daycare spot, and now it looks like it’s the same for schools.

Surprisingly finding the decision quite stressful.

With all the babies born during covid it feels there is too many kids the same age and not enough spots at schools/daycares.

Gone are the days of applying for a spot at school and being 100 per cent sure you’ll get in.

Such an important decision picking which school to send your child to, trying to basically predict the future as to where they’ll be happy.

If you have any info on recommendations, please let me know!

I have been chatting with every child that comes in to read the weather for our Weather Wiz Kid segment that we have on air every Wednesday, getting firsthand info from students and their parents on how they feel about their school.  

You can register to have your child be the Weather Wiz Kid at Goodluck to all the schools who have registered to win Star’s School Of The Year, tune in to hear the winner announced next week!
