Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

ATH­LETI­CISM, com­pe­ti­tion, so­cial­is­ing and mag­nif­i­cent burg­ers will be fea­tures of the an­nual Mono­go­rilby Sports Day this Satur­day and ev­ery­one is wel­come to at­tend.

Nom­i­na­tions for track and field events for pri­mary chil­dren have al­ready been re­ceived from Mono­go­rilby, Aber­corn, Durong, Mun­dub­bera, Boynewood and Bin­jour schools but there’s plenty of room for more.

There will be a run­ning event for preschool­ers/tod­dlers and plenty of fun for the adults as they vie for the much prized Jerry Ateric shield.

“This shield is gen­er­ally awarded to the team that is most suc­cess­ful in get­ting away with be­ing flex­i­ble with the rules in the ball games,” Mono­go­rilby State School prin­ci­pal Joanna Vi­dler said.

“It may set an ap­palling ex­am­ple to the chil­dren but much fun and laugh­ter is had by all.”

As usual the cater­ing team will pro­duce some de­li­cious fare in­clud­ing burg­ers and home­made sausage rolls, caramel slice, cakes and a wide range of drinks.

The event is run by Mono­go­rilby school's P&C as­so­ci­a­tion and, as it is one of their ma­jor fundraisers for the year, there will be great prizes for the multi draw raf­fle and a hun­dreds board to help fill the cof­fers.

“As well as a full wallet, loud voice, and a good spirit please do bring a coat as if it is cool any­where, it will be cooler here,” Ms Vi­dler said.

Nom­i­na­tions will be taken on the day, but early ones are pre­ferred.

To nom­i­nate phone Peta Weier on 4165 8118 or email monoschool­bus@big­

As al­ways it will be sport and friend­li­ness that are the real win­ners on the day.


SUC­CESS: Brooke Radke and El­lie Jenk­in­son at last year’s event.
