Government fails to support dying at home in Northern Rivers

Approaching the subject of dying is always tricky, often awkward, and never easy. But when you are faced with caring for someone at the end of their life, it helps if you can find support from people who have already navigated the path.

Mullumbimby Public School chess-playing students are proving to be winners after the school team won the northern rivers junior chess competition recently in a hard fought and close final in Ballina.

Emily Wilson and Zahi Addis (pictured rear) led the way with six wins out of seven, finishing equal second equal in the individual competition.

Their younger siblings, Mia and Hani (pictured front) with a score of five and 4.5 out of seven, weren’t far behind, making it a great team performance and keeping the title in Mullumbimby  for another year after Shearwater and Durrumbul shared the title last year. Shearwater finished a commendable fourth considering most of their top team weren’t able to make it. Results: Mullumbimby Public School 1 (21.5pts), St Josephs Alstonville 2 (20.5pts), Wyrallah Rd 3 (19.5pts).
