Special events

At Buderim Mountain State School we encourage students to participate in annual community events, and also invite children’s families into the school to celebrate and participate in internal events. We believe having strong community ties and active family participation in children’s schooling is vital to a positive school experience, and helps children become fulfilled and active citizens.

Annual school events include:

Book Week parade: Students from Prep to Year 2 dress up as a character from their favourite book as part of The Children’s Book Council of Australia ‘Book Week’ celebrations. The event usually takes place in August and runs in conjunction with other activities promoting Australian authors and illustrators, and the importance of reading.
Easter Hat Parade: Every year students in Prep and Year 1 participate in the Easter hat parade. Parents and children work together to create an Easter hat or bonnet, which is worn by students during the show as part of our broader Easter celebrations.
Christmas Concert: A source of great excitement for our junior school students is the Christmas Concert. Featuring an array of musical performances, including many well-loved Christmas carols, it’s an event not to be missed.
Community Events:
ANZAC Day: The Buderim community hosts an annual parade which proceeds from the top of Burnett Street and finishes at the Memorial Gates of our school, with an ANZAC service following in the memorial pine plantation. Students are invited to march in the parade, and children who participate in three ANZAC or Australia Day parades are awarded a Buderim Badge for Service.
Australia Day: The Buderim Australia Day Grand Parade follows the same route as the ANZAC Day parade, and once again finishes in our school grounds, but this time finishes with games and various activities held on our school oval.
