    Preston Campbell Shield

    Last Friday Mt St Pat's and St Joseph's combined to play in the Preston Campbell Shield.  The team proved to be unstoppable winning all their games fairly convincingly to make it to the finals against Cudgen.  The score was 4 - 4 at half time.  The second half was just as close with the boys pulling away in a nail biting 12 - 8 final score!  A magnificent effort from the boys and coaches.  Special thanks to Duane Smith and Ian Shoobridge for coaching the boys to a spectacular victory!

    Today St Joseph’s students competed in the Tweed Zone Athletics Trials.  Every child there represented the school with pride and enthusiasm. We finished second in the Aggregate Shield (small schools) which is very impressive.

    Special mention to Tessa Hendrikse and Jim McCracken for their ‘Runner-Up Age Champion’ award.

    The school team participated with good sportsmanship and competed to the best of their ability.  Go Joeys!
