Youth Games sil­ver

Isis Town and Country - - News -

PCYC emer­gency ser­vice cadets have added an­other achieve­ment to their long list af­ter they won sil­ver at the State Youth Vol­un­teer Games in Bris­bane.

Johnathan New­some, Danni Mor­ris, Kir­rili Schimpf and Bri­anna Lee rep­re­sented Childers against teams from Surf Life Sav­ing, Ru­ral Fire Ser­vices and other vol­un­teer groups across the state.

SLS ended up with the gold, but lo­cal co-or­di­na­tor Rhy Baker said it was an out­stand­ing ef­fort from the lo­cals.

“They’re very proud of them­selves and they’ve done us proud,” she said.

This com­pe­ti­tion in­volved four sec­tions:

■ A pre­sen­ta­tion to ex­plain who and what they and their emer­gency ser­vice is, and their achieve­ments;

■ A first re­spon­der’s chal­lenge, that pit­ted the group in a real-life sit­u­a­tion and put their train­ing to the test;

■ A se­ries of mini games based on team­work and trust, and;

■ A se­ries of dif­fer­ent chal­lenges in which they formed four-per­son groups with mem­bers from other ser­vices to com­pete.
