Peachester State School goes international

Contributed by Kim Fillery

PEACHESTER State School students have once again enjoyed participating in the annual QCWA International Competition, alongside their friends at Peachester CWA. Each year the school students from prep to year 6 compete in the Children’s International Competition, where they study and present information about the nominated “Country of Study”. In 2022, the Country of Study is Australia.

The students explored all aspects of life and living in Australia, including history and religion, people and fashion, language, geography and industry, flora and fauna, foods and cooking, crafts and traditions. The students loved seeing their work on display at the Peachester Hall, where the Peachester CWA host their yearly International Lunch.

Thanks to Mrs Helen Page, the International Coordinator for Peachester CWA, who synchronises the collection and judging of the students’ work, sending the winners to the Regional and State Competitions.
