Nanango student plan flash mob

WHEN it comes to a flash mob, practice makes perfect.

Students at Nanango State School have shown their dedication by turning up to practice on Monday's public holiday.

At least 50 children are participating in the flash mob spectacle to be held during the annual Heritage Nanango Mardi Gras.

 According to Principal Lyal Giles the flash mob is a good way to get the kids from all year levels involved.

"We did one last year and it got a really good response from the community," he said.

The best thing about this is it's different and there's space for all of the students who want to be involved."

Mr Giles has been at the school for eight years and previously the school had a float in the parade.

"You can only fit a certain amount of students on a float and for the school it's all about participation," he said.

Involvement in community events is important to the school and Nanango dance school owner Ashleigh Hatchman was happy to participate.

"It's a good group of kids. They're well disciplined and generally do as they're told," she said.

I think the flash mob is a good thing for the kids because it's more exciting."

The dance is a group effort and the students will need to work together in more ways than one.

"There's a lot of lifting and supporting each other," Ms Hatchman said.

"They have to constantly be looking at each other to make sure they're keeping in time."
