Great night was had by all at Toolooa SHS sports awards
WITH everything from enthralling routines by state-level acrobatic gymnasts to talks by State of Origin greats, Toolooa State High School's annual sports awards were anything but boring.
The school celebrated the outstanding achievements of its budding athletes last Wednesday evening at the Harvey Road Tavern.
In attendance were students, teachers, and two special guests - Steve Price and Brent Tate. Age champions were recognised, as were those who had shown outstanding involvement in community sports and representative school sports.
Also announced on the night were the best and fairest winners for interschool sport teams and the prestigious titles of Junior Sportsperson of the Year and Senior Sportsperson of the Year.
Sports coordinator Lynn Paap said Toolooa SHS was a great school and the reason for that was the students' great attitudes.
Price and Tate spoke about their lives and regaled the audience with anecdotes. Price said prizewinning students had posted some amazing achievements and both men encouraged students to stay in school and get the best education possible.
"Those simple little things like getting an education just give you such a leg up in future life," Tate said.
