SCHOOL SPORT: 2017 marked a bril­liantly suc­cess­ful year for St Patrick’s Catholic Pri­mary School not only in the class­room, but also on the field, pitch and in the pool.

The school re­cently held an awards cer­e­mony for those stu­dents who had an out­stand­ing sporting year, with prin­ci­pal Bren­dan Redinger prais­ing his pupils.

“It’s an an­nual cer­e­mony that we hold to hon­our our stu­dents, we’ve been hold­ing it for many years. It’s part of the his­tory here at St Patrick’s,” Mr Redinger said.

“We had mul­ti­ple stu­dents rep­re­sent Balonne and South West Queens­land teams in a va­ri­ety of sports in­clud­ing ath­let­ics, cricket and many more.”

Mr Redinger also ac­knowl­edged the un­wa­ver­ing sup­port of the schools par­ents, as he knows the cru­cial role they play in nur­tur­ing their chil­dren dur­ing sporting en­deav­ours.

“I take my hat off to the stu­dents for a great year they have had, and also to the par­ents and lo­cal com­mu­nity. They have been so sup­port­ive through­out the year.”

The school’s staff are al­ready work­ing hard to en­sure 2018 is even bet­ter.
