Local government elections postponed – again

NSW local government elections are postponed again due to the pandemic.

Late last month 36 students from the Byron Community Primary School travelled to Coffs Harbour to compete in the North Coast Independent Schools (NCIS) Athletics carnival. 

The school had children aged between eight and 12 participating in event. All the students put in a fantastic effort and all enjoyed the opportunity to represent their school. There we re some very exciting results with Elena Nagel coming first in 12/13 years discus with a throw of 18.63m – this result means she will be going to Sydney the next week to represent the north coast. 

Other great efforts were from Phoebe Pockley, who finished second in the 800m, and Jimmy Coppin-Buckenham, who finished third in the 800m – alas, although awesome results, the NCIS only takes first place winner to Sydney for the rep event.

Most students improved in their times, jumps and throws and are all better for the great experience.
