YOUNG people were celebrated as schools and childcare centres across the Bundaberg region marked Under-8s Week.

The celebrations culminated on Friday, with schools holding fun days open to the public.

Moore Park State School teacher Dean Morcom said kids took part in activities such as marble painting, mini golf, ten-pin bowling and chalk drawings.

"It's a celebration of the junior school and all the under-8s outside the school get a chance to experience what school is like before it's their turn to come along," he said.

Mr Morcom said about 40 more children from the region took part in the day's activities, which had been organised by the Year 7s at the school.

"It's a part of our leadership program to get them to organise and run the activities," he said.

Mr Morcom said the students had used a mix of tried and true activities, as well as ones they had made up themselves.
