St. Benedict’s Folk Group performed “Shake the Papaya down” last Thursday in the Primary School Folk Group Section of the Rockhampton Eisteddfod. Congratulations to the students who performed very well without placing in their section. Many thanks to Mrs Harms & Mrs Osborne for their lovely outfits. Mrs. Boyd & Mrs McLuskie were super proud of them.
