School’s Out for Tamrookum Students

Beaudesert Golf Club rolled out the red carpet for the nine Year 6 students graduating from Tamrookum State School

The small cohort are a close knit bunch according to Acting Principal Ron Lucas.

“With that number of students they all tend to become friends,” he said.

School Leader Patrick Perkins said he had enjoyed his final year at Tamrookum.

“The School Leaders help raise money for the school by running ice-cream sales and other events,” he said.

The students had a mixture of emotions on the night with several of them feeling sad about moving on from the small school.

With only two girls in the year level, Emily Johns and Ava Wallace said they had formed a close friendship.

The students will continue their schooling in Beaudesert, with seven of them continuing on to Beaudesert State High School and two students going to McAuley College.

Tamrookum State School welcomes 27 students into Year 6 in 2022.
