Group Report – November 2015

Greetings from the far North of our great Country! Although I’m not sure Mother Nature is all that happy with us right now! Stay Safe everyone! Well! Where do I start! So much has been happening in our little neck of the woods, I fear this may turn into a novel.

I will start by Congratulating Tiana Holt-Stephens on her recent grade 12 awards night. Tiana received a High Achievement Award in both Legal Studies and Math. To top off her evening, Tiana was also presented with the ‘High Achievement Award’ which is given to students who go above and beyond. Tiana has been an exceptional role model for the other students, is always applying herself and striving to do better. She has been a rock of support for students, when they have needed her, and I have no doubt will continue this on in her life after leaving school. Congratulations Tiana, we are all so very proud of you.

Matthew Lundie has recently attended his 3rd State Championships, which were actually held here in Townsville this year, thankfully he didn’t have to travel too far. Matt added a couple of new events to his repertoire this year, and achieved 5 new pb’s all in a weekends work! Along with 6 Gold Medals to add to his collection!!! Matt is now training hard getting ready to compete at the School Sport Australia National Championships in Canberra the first weekend in December, where he will represent Queensland in his selected events. We wish you all the best in Canberra Matthew, and look forward to hearing all about your achievements.

Also recently, here in North Queensland, we were honoured to have Claire Keefer and Kobie Donovan visit us for ‘acclimatisation’ before their recent AMAZINGLY SUCCESSFUL trip to Doha, Qatar where they represented Australia. Both Claire and Kobie, came to Townsville for a week to compete (well, actually it was merely a practice for them) at the Athletics North Queensland Championships held in September. Lachlan Volling-Geoghegan from Ravenshoe was also at the comp strutting his stuff, and achieving greatness as always. Lachlan was very excited to meet Claire and Kobie as he had not met them before.

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to both Claire and Kobie on their successes in Doha. You ladies should be very proud of yourselves, as we are all so very proud of you.

North Queensland Group will be holding a Fundraiser and Awareness Raising Sausage Sizzle on Sunday 15th November at Bunnings Warehouse.
