Knights Eagle sets challenge for kids

By NATALIE PEUTnataliep@gladstoneobserver.com.au

'THE challenge and the chance to meet new people and make new friends' was the reason Joseph Pappagallo enjoys Knights Eagle, formerly known as Rumble in the Jungle.

The new name came about after Boyne Smelters Ltd come on-board with Queensland Health to run the obstacle course event.

The Knights Eagle challenge will begin at George Creed's property on April 1 and Joseph believed the Knights Eagle activities sounded extremely exciting.

'Last year was fantastic and it was a chance to work in a team and also be a leader,' he said.

Queensland Health drug and alchol worker Trinity Molloy said the Knights Eagle focused on teamwork and communications.

'They learn things like building a raft to get across a creek without getting wet, what to do if a plane crashes, first aid and there will also be a mock car accident,' she said.
