Students net success at NAIDOC carnival
South West schools converged on Busselton Senior High School for their second annual NAIDOC basketball carnival on Monday.
The carnival is part of the school’s Waalitj Kaaditjin Engagement Program.
Students from Busselton SHS, Newton Moore Senior High School’s South West Clontarf Football Academy and four teams from Australind Senior High School took part in the event.
Year 10 student councillor Damien Farrell opened the event with a welcome to country followed by some high-quality games of basketball. The senior girls’ event was won by Newton Moore SHS Girls Academy while the senior boys came back from a 20-point deficit to defeat Newton Moore Clontarf by a solitary point.
In the junior event, the Girls Academy and Busselton ran out winners. Medals were awarded to two members from each team that personified the spirit of friendliness and endeavour.
These awards were presented by Perth Wildcats legend Glenn Ellis, representing Pioneers Aboriginal Corporation.
