The Robina State School CPAC will be getting an upgrade tomorrow, with brand new state-of-the-art lighting being installed – just in time for our Fluro Disco happening Thursday this week (you can still pre-purchase tickets online here).
This is the final piece of the CPAC fit-out which has happened gradually over the last 3 years, as you may have seen discussed in the last P&C meeting (skip to 1:06:39).
Thanks to the wonderful fundraising efforts and support from our school community these 12 x new lights are being funded by the P&C, and are in addition to the 4 “front of house” lights that the P&C Association funded last year.
The lighting and visibility on the stage has been an issue until now, with students and teachers reporting difficulty reading sheet music during performances. Now, our children will not only be able to see clearly, but the additional lighting and visibility will also make the stage area safer for students when in use.
Our exciting new colourful spotlights will illuminate the entire hall and cast colourful patterns on the dance floor, adding yet another element of excitement and joy to the kids disco and event experience at the school. You might also notice the new disco ball & smoke machine in use for the first time at the disco – something PE Teacher Mrs Worland, has had on her wish list for a LONG time!
Historically we have had to hire lights for our events throughout the year, so the decision to purchase our own means we will also now be saving on hire costs throughout the year and brings our hall up to a similar standard of other schools, with Mudgeeraba Creek SS and All Saints College reportedly having installed the same equipment.
A huge thank you to Mr Kolterman (our resident DJ and lighting & sound guru) for his efforts in organising this upgrade, and to the P&C for making this happen so quickly so the students can benefit from the new lights this week.
We can’t wait to see our hall transformed into a wonderland of light and fun this Thursday night at the disco… see you there!
