Byron Community Primary School students enjoyed one of their first tastes of netball when three mixed teams went to a gala day held in Mullumbimby last week.

‘Netball is a new sport to our students, but they quickly demonstrated a high level of skill and strategy. All teams were entered in the non- competitive division, to allow them to get a taste for the game,’ Annie Roberts from the school said.

‘Our year-four Starfish team had only one practice run before the day; however, they were still successful in winning a number of games. Our year-five Whales team also had success and won three out of five games.

‘Our year-six Whales teams demonstrated fantastic teamwork and skill and were victorious in all five games.

‘The students really enjoyed the day and are already looking forward to going back next year,’ Annie said.
