RECOGNISING SPORT AND ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS
ON WEDNESDAY, October 25, Kingaroy State High School celebrated the sporting excellence of a large number of students recognised for their commitment, dedication and excellent performances throughout the year in Queensland School Affiliated Sports.
Congratulations to the Bass Blue Memorial Sports Person of the Year – Taylor Watt.
Taylor has had great success with football, athletics and touch this year. She is a worthy winner for 2017. Palmer House received the Australia Shield for Champion House for 2017.
These results are a great reward for the consistent, all- round effort displayed by the leadership of the enthusiastic house leaders and the students of Palmer House.
The Australia Shield for the runner- up house in 2017 was rewarded to Youngman.
This year, the Tony Cush Memorial Shield was presented to Ben Irwin as the Best and Fairest Open Rugby League Player of the Year.
Thank you to Miss Sarah- Louise Cush for presenting this award.
Sports night was a great success with an inspiring interview by Miss Taliqua Clancy.
Miss Clancy is a past student of Kingaroy High and is the first indigenous Australian volleyballer to represent Australia at the Olympics.
Well done to all of the award winners for their achievements in 2017.
2017 Speech Night
THE annual Speech Night was held recently on Thursday, October 12 in the Town Hall.
It was very pleasing to see so many students recognised for their achievements in academic and cultural pursuits.
It was also evident on the night how involved our students are in giving back to our community.
A highlight of the night was guest speaker, past student Flt Lt Oliver Kersnovski who spoke of his successes and challenges in reaching his goal.
