Murwillumbah High School’s senior boys volleyball team has finished first in the North Coast region. They will represent the North Coast region at the NSW knock-out competition in Sydney, on the first week back in term three.

‘This group of individuals is exceptional,’ said Coach and teacher Carl Marshall.

‘They’ve been training twice a week every week of every term since Year 8, and they’re now in Year 12.

‘Their commitment to the game and to each other is wonderful, and huge success has followed, despite the fact that they get almost no match practice because there are no volleyball competitions for them to compete in between Coffs Harbour and Brisbane.’

The school has a high number of representatives at regional and state level across a variety of sports and a high profile in the Arts despite its status as a small regional high school of 430 students.

A note from the editorial team

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
