Bay schools go head-to-head

For the first time in many years, Byron Bay Public School and St Finbarr’s Primary School clashed on the rugby league field last week.


In hot conditions, the public school eventually ran away with the game 26-nil.


Public school principal, Geoff Spargo, said it was the first step in a program of greater interaction between the schools.


Mr Spargo said more events were planned for next year, which also would involve public schools from Mullumbimby and Brunswick Heads.
 

Byron News editor Gary Chigwidden was at the game to catch some of the action.
