PROUD Mullumbimby Public School principal David Lees has praised four students who have excelled in two vastly different arenas.

In a remarkable result for the school, two students were placed in the top three in NSW in their respective competition hosted by the Australian Storytelling Guild.

Year 6 student Billie Jacks finished second in the 2013 Storytelling Competition, while Year 5 student Abigail Rynehart placed third in the Story Writing section.

A third student, Ruby McCann from Year 6, gained a highly commendable.

On the sporting field, school captain Jed Edwards capped off a great year with selection in the NSW PSSA rugby league team to contest the national titles in Perth next month.

"Jed was named captain of the North Coast team and recently returned from Dubbo where the state championships were held," Mr Lees said.

"North Coast finished a credible sixth, with three victories and three losses."

Jed scored two tries and landed five goals throughout the tournament.

Mr Lees said he was delighted with each of the students' respective achievements and, along with the school community, was "extremely proud" of their efforts.

"To have so many students excelling at such a high level is testament to the hard work and dedication they possess," he said.
