The Valley of Small Schools cross country at Durrumbul Public School last Friday saw over 300 students, teachers and parents come together to enjoy the day.

‘What a beautiful day at Durrumbul,’ said P&C president Cherie Bromley.

‘A great cross country was had by all.’

Students from Coorabell, Goonengerry, Newrybar, Main Arm and The Pocket Coe to run the cross country through the lovely Durrumbul Schools grounds and along Durrumbul Road.

‘When the students were walking the route in the morning they were pointing out the tress and bird song and I had to remind them to pay attention to the route,’ said one teacher.

Council closing route

Currently the Byron Shire Council has slated part of the cross country route for closure as they have said they will remove at least one of the culverts that the route uses.

The Main Arm bikeway group have requested councillors to join them in a meeting to look at keeping the route open for both exercise, including the cross country, and cycling, however, only Councillor Cate Coorey has responded so far.
