Last Friday the students of Coorabell Public School transformed their library into a sparkling jungle, in preparation for their most epic disco yet.

Over 100 students dressed as their favourite animals and were entranced by DJ Shorty Brown, who played a range of tunes from the jungle theme to pop.

The disco ran on late into the afternoon. Students lead their parents and  teachers with their best dance moves.

Simon from Coorabell Public School P&C says, ‘the disco was simply to bring the students and our community together in a fun environment.’

Coorabell Public School runs meaningful community focussed events every term. They make sure to keep the events as sustainable as possible using reusable plates and cups. Replacing glow sticks with face paint and using plant based decorations.
