SCHOOLS out for another year, and yesterday class rooms around Gladstone were filled with over excited children preparing for the six-week long holiday.
Although a number of students had already headed off on their holidays yesterday, pizza boxes and lollies filled classrooms.
Clinton State Primary School celebrated the finish of school yesterday with plenty of fun-filled activities.
The school threw a Christmas party for the children, with pizza and lollies, games and movies.
Year 2 student Ben Dempsey said the last day of school has been so much fun.
'This morning we watched a movie called Polar Express,' he said.
'The movie was all about Christmas.'
He said at lunch time they all enjoyed a pizza and a pop top.
'I love pizza, it was great,' he said.
"This afternoon we are going to watch more movies and eat lollies.'
Ben said he was excited about the six weeks holiday.
'I am staying here for Christmas, but then going away to see my grandparents after,'' he said.
'My nanny and pop live in Hervey Bay and I am so excited to go and see them,' he said.
'I can't wait to go to the beach and kick the footy around.
