Funds for indigenous footy

COUNCILLOR Cherie Rutherford is seeking the approval of councillors today for her proposal to give $1000 to support an indigenous rugby league tour to the Gold Coast.

Cr Rutherford wants to give money from her discretionary fund to Rockhampton State High School's P and C Association to send pupils from Years 8 and 9 to the Indigenous All Stars match, an All Stars training session and the Bumhela Indigenous Festival.

To be eligible for the tour boys must have demonstrated regular school attendance and positive behaviour.

The total cost of the trip is $8500.
