Local Life: Gundagai, Young, Canberra

Special delivery for St Pat’s
STUDENTS at St Patrick’s Primary Gundagai have received a gift of sports equipment from St Vincent’s Primary Aranda. St Vincent’s principal Mrs Lina Vigliotta and her husband delivered the equipment to the school which does not have the funds to buy new gear. Students can’t wait to put the equipment to use especially the basketballs. 

Sarah’s winning Anzac poem
SARAH Miller from Hennessey College Young has won an Anzac Day writing competition. The Year 7 student’s poem ‘The Day That They Left’ was published in a commemorative booklet distributed to households in the Riverina. The competition is an initiative of Deputy PM Michael McCormack to showcase the talent of Riverina students.

    There is a goal to be won with comical short poems/stories. 
    Sarah’s Anzac poem would fit in very nicely.

    Anybody interested in promoting this new line of literature?
