On Tuesday 20 October, Ormeau Woods State High School travelled to Stanthorpe State High School for what has been termed ‘The Beach to Bush Challenge’. The concept has been organised by Mr Petrie through his Gold Coast contacts. Approximately 50 students participated from Stanthorpe State High School in Touch Football and Futsal. Stanthorpe State High School won 3 of the 4 Futsal matches, with the U15 Girls, U15 Boys A team and the Open Boys winning their matches. The touch football teams didn’t fare as well, unable to register a win for the day. Despite this, valuable experience was gained for all students involved. Thanks to Mr Petrie for organising this in partnership with Ormeau Woods State High School. The exchange is looking to be developed further. A big thank you goes to the YMCA and Stanthorpe Rugby League for the use of their facilities.
