Getting crafty

SIX months of plan­ning, de­sign­ing and build­ing all cul­mi­nated for Year 10 tech­nol­ogy students with the judg­ing of the Ro­tary Craftsper­son Award en­tries on Mon­day, Novem­ber 13.

Students were re­quired to de­sign an item around an in­di­vid­ual need, source ma­te­ri­als and craft their item of their own de­signs from ei­ther metal, wood or a com­bi­na­tion of both.

The Ro­tary Craftsper­son Award has been run­ning in Stan­thorpe for over 18 years and pro­vides tech­nol­ogy students with a chance to show­case their skills.

St Joseph’s en­tries which fea­tured a squat­ters chair, dog boxes, tool cab­i­net and a pic­nic set­ting was judged on func­tion, de­sign, use­ful­ness and fin­ish by judges Nev Win­ter and Jim Bax­ter from the Ro­tary Club of Stan­thorpe.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the win­ner of the award, stu­dent Jared Hitch­ener, and run­ner-up Daniel Gas­parin.

Court com­pe­ti­tion

In what was a show­case of true sports­man­ship, students Billy Webb, Jack Spencer, Jor­dan

Water­worth, Will Bon­ner and Sha­nia Politch rep­re­sented St Joseph’s School at the Ted Bon­ner Ten­nis com­pe­ti­tion on Fri­day, Novem­ber 24, held at the Stan­thorpe Ten­nis As­so­ci­a­tion Courts.

Students played ex­tremely well, win­ning the semi-final against the Stan­thorpe State Pri­mary School, three sets to one.

Re­gret­tably the students went down the same way, three to one in the final against Glen Aplin.

All the games were played in the true spirit of the game, with each com­peti­tor very sup­port­ive of their own play­ers as well as their op­po­si­tion.

The win­ners tro­phies and run­ners-up medals were pre­sented by David Bon­ner, grand­son of Ted Bon­ner.
