Pil­bara pub­lic high school stu­dents brought their A games to Perth for ma­jor School Sports WA event Coun­try Week.

Sixty-six stu­dents from Kar­ratha Se­nior High School at­tended last week’s tour­na­ment with teams in men’s foot­ball, men’s and women’s bas­ket­ball, men’s and women’s vol­ley­ball, net­ball and mixed soc­cer.

Deputy prin­ci­pal Scott Cum­ming said it was one of the school’s big­gest con­tin­gents in re­cent years as well as one of the largest in the North West.

“It’s a great ex­pe­ri­ence for (stu­dents) be­cause they get to go down to Perth,” he said.

“There’s over 2000 stu­dents from across the State, from all dif­fer­ent coun­try se­nior high schools and dis­trict high schools. So they go down to com­pete and to rep­re­sent our school and do the best that they can.”

Mr Cum­ming said the com­pe­ti­tion had taken a lot of com­mit­ment from stu­dents and coaches who had been train­ing since the be­gin­ning of the year, but they liked their chances.

Tom Price Se­nior High School also had 34 stu­dents at­tend Coun­try Week rep­re­sent­ing the school in women’s net­ball, men’s bas­ket­ball, men’s vol­ley­ball and mixed touch foot­ball.
