A sporty region
DESPITE being country based with limited resources, the North Burnett has some exceptional athletes.
With school sport now well underway, students from all the different towns are qualifying for impressive positions and competitions, particularly in getting to represent theWide Bay in various areas.
Over the past year, the paper has reported on so many people qualifying to compete overseas particularly with horse events, gaining scholarships to educational institutes with their sporting achievements and young people following their dreams.
These stories are some of my favourite to report on, and show that no matter where you are from, if you put in the hard work and have a vision, you can achieve anything.
