Do you recall Cambooya Junior Performance Festival?

There is a small amount of money left in the Junior Performance Festival bank account and we would like to get some advice as to how the community would like to see these funds used.

At the final Cambooya Junior Performance Festival, Male Spirit of the Festival award winner Jeremy Gray, festival founder the late Carmel Randle and Female Spirit of the Festival award winner Emma Hoey.

The Junior Performance Festival was held in the Cambooya Public Hall every second year from 2001 through to 2013. 

It was a festival of the arts for primary and high school students. 

The late Mrs Carmel Randle - a well known local Australian bush poet, and a band of local community folk ran the festival. 

Young people who resided in the Greenmount Service Centre Area were invited to participate in the Divisions of Speech, Vocal and Choral, Instrumental Music, Piano and Keyboard and Dance. 

Each division was overseen by Artform Professionals including Sandra Neale, Mary Taylor, the late Harley Mead, Kym Troy, Allison Vallette, Tonya Paroz to name a few.

A number of the Junior Performance Festival Committee including two of the current account signatories have moved away from the local area, so we need to decide what to do with the funds.

If you have any ideas on how the remaining Festival money could be used, please put them in writing and drop your note to the Cambooya Post Office labelled ‘Cambooya Junior Performance Festival, email Glenda at or Jean at or ring Glenda at 0429 646 853 and leave a message or Jean at 0498 999 986.

If all ideas can be gathered by the end of May a decision on how the funds will be used will be made early in June.
