Sports Day Excitement at Widgee

Article excerpt


THERE was much excitement at Widgee State School last week with their annual sports carnival held over two days.

The line-ups were fantastic with students eager to compete in all manner of events including relay races, shotput, discus, long jumps, high jump and, of course, the tug-o-war.

The Bushman's Kitchen will be open for meals from 6.30-7.45pm and with the wood fire burning away the dining room will be nice and snug.

The Bushman's Bar opens from 3pm Fridays and from 4pm on Saturdays. Inquiries to the hall during opening hours on 5484 0282.
