Central and North Burnett Times - - EDUCATION -

MONO­GO­RILBY stu­dents are work­ing in line with their school motto and striv­ing for ex­cel­lence both in the class­room and on the sports field.

Thanks to their work this term, un­der the di­rec­tion of Vicki-Lee Radke, fit­ness lev­els and ath­let­ics skills have im­proved.

The hard work paid off for the stu­dents who at­tended Aber­corn Good­will Games re­cently when six stu­dents were awarded the age cham­pion tro­phies.

“This bodes well for Mono­go­rilby’s up­com­ing sports day on Satur­day, June 15 to which all are wel­come,” Prin­ci­pal Jo Vi­dler said.

In other sports news, the school has se­cured vis­its from Richard Dug­dale for rugby league coach­ing and Shaun Lethem from Lit­tle Ath­let­ics to work with stu­dents on how they can im­prove their track and field tech­niques.

P/1 teacher Mark Zita, has been spend­ing his morn­ing tea and lunch times ref­er­ee­ing and coach­ing league and grid­iron games and will be soon spend­ing some time teach­ing pi­ano to all stu­dents.

“Sev­eral Mono­go­rilby stu­dents have been do­ing very well in equine pur­suits at week­ends, with cam­p­draft and show­ing wins and places,” Ms Vi­dler said.
