Bonalbo enhances its reputation

BONALBO Central School emerged from the NSW Combined High Schools Sports Association and All Schools canoeing championships with a host of awards.

Sixteen Bonalbo students competed at Nymboida with Addison McCormack winning the CHS championship.

He also won the junior boys regional title.

Anna Bain is the senior girls regional champion with younger sister Catriona Bain the junior girls champion.

Other Bonalbo Central winners included Claire Firkin and Jeremy Johnston (sub-junior regional champions).

The school was also awarded NSW champion school, Northern Region All Schools champion and North Coast champion school.

It's not the first time the school has had such success in canoeing with a fifth place at the Australian Schools white water national championships in Tasmania in January.

The K1 single slalom gold medallist from the Beijing Olympic Games, Jacqui Lawrence, and her younger sisters Kate and Ros are former Bonalbo Central School students.
