A boring school yard it was not.
Instead, Concordia College was the site of a rock concert yesterday as students nodded their heads to the music while they ate their lunch.
Caboolture band Ripple Effect performed for the thrilled audience ahead of the Easter long weekend Australian Gospel Music Festival (AGMF).
Guitarist Brad Lyons said playing at schools was a gig the band enjoyed.
"Schools are a captive audience I guess because they have to be here" he laughed, before adding more seriously, "they're more open to the music and the message because its different for us to be here, whereas if we were at a pub, the crowd would almost expect us to be there."
Behind the pumping beat and grunged-out rock look were profound messages the band hoped would be heard by its young audience.
'Musically, our influences are varied from punk rock to hard core. Lyrically, we're pro life in that we try to send a positive message" Mr Lyons said.
The subject matter they tackle however is a shade darker. "We try to provide an alternative view of some issues", lead singer Taneka Stevens said.
Some of those issues include abortion and depression, which the lead singer says can lead to feelings of hopelessness in young people.
Ripple Effect likes to challange such sentiments.
The band will spend the rest of the week performing at The Glennie School, Centenary Heights State School and Downlands College before playing at the Boogie Shack on Friday and at AGMF next week. - Rebecca Vonhoff, The Chornicle, Toowoomba Qld Australia


The Ripple Effect are hoping to create some musical waves at the Queensland Rock Awards.
Cabooltures Brad Lyons, guitarist and backing vocals, will be in the line-up at Gilhooleys, Chermside, on October 30.
He will be joined by lead singer Taneka, 23, bass guitarist Adam, 22, and Jamie, 19, drums and backing vocals - all members of the Stevens family.
Before Ripple Effect perform many will gather this weekend for heat two of the awards.

More than 800 North Coast youngsters gathered in Lismore on Saturday night for a boogie to local music talents.
The Upsurge concert, tagged as a positive youth event run by youth, was aimed at various issues in the juvenile community such as sucide and abuse.
The concert, sponsored in part by The Northern Star, was held at Lismore City Hall.
The night included musical performances from The Veld, Ripple Effect, Brittle, DJ Psyfex and The Very Unique Existance.
Event coordinator Joel Spoor said the show could not have gone better.
"It was brilliant, brilliant concert" Mr Spoor said.
"The crowd was so excited. Everyone was pretty much screaming from beginning to end." - The Northern Star, Lismore, NSW Australia
