Talent comes out of isolation

CENTRAL Queensland students are being given a sporting chance.

Students from rural isolated schools joined the ICPA (Isolated Children's Parents Association) sporting clinic at the Clermont Showgrounds this month.

Some travelled up to six hours to attend the clinic.

More than 100 students, from Years 4 to 7, joined the sporting bonanza participating in sports like rugby union, tennis, basketball, rugby league, cricket, soccer and golf.

Participating schools were Valkyrie, Comet, Clarke Creek, Tresswell, Lochington, Mistake Creek, Kilcummin, Arcadia Valley and Mackenzie River, along with home schoolers from Moura and Bauhinia districts and Distance Education students from Charters Towers and Capricornia.

Leading this year's camp was Clermont school teacher Don Saunders ? last weekend named captain of the Queensland Cup 10 Year Team in rugby league.
