Canowindra High School are very fortunate to have so many opportunities to participate in sport, which wouldn’t be possible without our talented students, dedicated staff and supportive parents. Some sports in which Canowindra High has represented this semester are swimming, junior and open boys rugby league, open boys and girls soccer, open boys and girls basketball and open boys tennis.
Recently, the annual Rural Cup visit saw us successfully challenge Molong in the first round. We will take on Oberon in Week 8 at home. If parents are able to referee any games or help in the canteen during this challenge, please contact the school as any help during this day would be appreciated.
Last Friday the students participated in good spirits at the athletics carnival. Western Area Athletics will be held Friday, 25th July 2014 at Bathurst. Mr McKenzie will be calling for nominations during the next few weeks. To be eligible students must meet qualifying times and distances set down by Western Area. Students will need to check this on the sports notice board and then see Mr McKenzie for entry details.
In fine winning form on Friday was Gilbert on 868 points ahead of Gardiner 811 points followed by Hall 772 points.
