ALTHOUGH the local focus has been on snowsports recently, a team from Snowy Mountains Grammar School made the trip to Sydney this week to compete in the Independent Co-educational Schools Athletics Carnival.

The competition is held at the Olympic Venue in Homebush, where the children will compete against others schools from NSW and the ACT in field and track events. For these children many hours on the snow provides great training for running and jumping.

As one of the competitors mother said "our local kids might not stand a chance against some of the other bigger schools, but what a great experience for our country children".
