If you went down to Borenore this week you were in for a big surprise, Monday was the day the teddy bears had their picnic.
Borenore Public School welcomed its 2020 kindergarten students with an orientation picnic in the playground.
The little ones who will join the school next year had a chance to familiarise themselves with the help of their older, wiser, year-one cohorts.
Sunshine Coast University students, Gabrielle Guisard, Chloe Titley-Murphy and Eilish Cook went along to help run the activities.
The second-year university students took their teddies along too.
Kindergarten teacher Debbie Guisard said the learning environment was transformed outdoors for the day, with tables and chairs as well as picnic rubs bought outside under the trees.
"It was a fun way to introduce the school to the kindergarten 2020 students," she said.
Ms Guisard said the students did crafts to improve their fine-motor skills, counting to introduce numbers and reading to get their teddies to sleep.
There are currently six students set to start kindergarten at Borenore in 2020, with five new families starting at the school.
They will be joining seven 2019 kindergarten students at the school of 40 pupils.
