North West Athletics 2019

North West Athletics Team

On Friday the 2 August, 38 Coonabarabran High students made the annual trip to Tamworth for the North West Athletics Carnival. The conditions were great with sun and a light wind to keep the temperatures down. Expectations were high and it proved correct with a record number of students qualifying for the state carnival.

The spirit of the team was shown when the students were asked to help out Miss Benson running the Javelin, as the school supplying students had to withdraw at the last minute. Our students made sure she was taken care of throughout the day even making runs to the canteen to keep Miss Benson fed and watered. Well done Coonabarabran High students, you are a caring bunch. We wish the best to the following students who will represent North West at the Combined High Schools Carnival in Sydney on the 4 – 6  September in Sydney.
