Students hit court in schools encounter
Close finish in final game
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.
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.
