What a sublime day it was last Friday. A feeling of pride was tangible as our wonderful new sports oval was officially opened, followed by a Junior High School soccer game with Byron High, Round 2 of the Bill Turner Cup.
It was wonderful to see such engagement from High School staff and students, who came to watch the opening and the match. The sports field will be widely used for daily PE lessons, internal school carnivals and inter-school games and sports days.
The Shearwater team played with enthusiasm and skill. But final goals in the last 15 minutes saw Byron take the lead. We wish them all the best for their next game against Xavier College.
On another note, Cape Byron is coming to Shearwater this Friday to play in a volleyball gala day for Years 7 and 8, followed by the Year 9 and 10 comp at Cape Byron next week. A great opportunity for some fun and friendly competition.
