Sport newsDuring the past week Riley Lack and Ryan Foran (photograph opposite) both attended the CHS state Rugby League Trials near Newcastle as representatives of the U15 Northern NSW team. Their team were only beaten once throughout the trials and both players impressed selectors enough for them to be chosen in the NSW CHS team which will compete in the National championships at Gympie in Queensland. To highlight this achievement, it has been many years since a Murwillumbah High School student was selected in this elite level team let alone two players at once.
Also competing at the state level for North Coast was Kyle Jeffery-Prestwich in hockey. Kyle was honoured with being named captain of the North Coast team which he led to first place in a very competitive finals series. This is the first time that North Coast has performed so well for many years. Kyle’s leadership and skills were further acknowledged with his selection in the NSW Combined High Schools Open Hockey team.
On Friday 1 June the Far North Coast Combined High Schools Cross Country was held at North Byron Parklands for the first time, combining with the PSSA for the first time in several years. Murwillumbah High School was represented with a team of 22 on a sunny yet windy day. The Murwillumbah High School star of the day was Edward Hubbard (photo opposite) who placed first in the 8km 18 years boys and was crowned Far North Coast age champion. In fourth place was Nick Everest (12 years), Callan Francis finished sixth (16 years), Charles Bullus (16 years) and Ben Lindsay (14 years) finished seventh and finally Cooper Stavar (13 years) and Ebony Woollard (12 years) finished ninth. All these students qualified for the North Coast trials which will be held at Nana Glen on Wednesday 13 June.
Other great performances from our students included Brad McCabe, Connor McCollough , Charlie Munro, John-Joseph Coleman, Max McCollough, Kelsey Dudgeon, Daniel LeDan, Noah Hill and Alexander Andrew. Tom O’Brien-Freeman, Owen Findlay and Chester Durrant also competed in the MC event but only Tom achieved the qualifying time.
MAT18On Thursday 24 May, Pearl Lee, Olympia James-Ainsley, Mackenzie Turner and their Visual Arts teacher Bev Cooke were invited to view Jack Quilter’s sculpture studio which was open to the public during the exciting MAT18 creative arts event. Jack was very generous with his time giving the students an overview of his professional practice and walking them through the making of his recently created sculpture series that you can see in the background of the group photo opposite.

Do you have a few hours to spare??Although the canteen employs casual staff, it is volunteers who are crucial to the success of the canteen. They are our most precious resource and they allow us to provide a quality service at very reasonable prices.We are striving to serve more fresh goods, which has resulted in more students coming to the canteen so more volunteers are required. The canteen operates 5 days a week and volunteers are usually only needed until 11.30am.Please call Sam on 0429 324 977
