Central and North Burnett Times - - JUNIOR SPORT -

DAL­LARNIL State School stu­dents have been par­tic­i­pat­ing against each other in the sport of ta­ble ten­nis for at least 10 years.

Prin­ci­pal An­drea Kelly said in Term 4 ta­ble ten­nis was in­tro­duced to en­cour­age the chil­dren out of the sun and heat and into the shade and cool un­der­neath the school rather than run­ning around out­side.

“The kids re­ally en­joy it and even the prep­pies be­come in­volved,” she said.

“The se­nior ag­gre­gate we couldn’t even sep­a­rate them – that’s how close it was.”

Jonah MacDon­ald was awarded the male sports award after his se­lec­tion for shot put at the state cham­pi­onships while the fe­male trophy went to Jo­hanna Kelly

The girls’ award was so close it came down to per­for­mances at the dis­trict and zone swimming tri­als

En­cour­age­ment awards went to Hay­ley Smart for her per­for­mance in the pool and Clayton Carl­son for hav­ing a go at many sports.
