I spent most of Tuesday (22nd January) with 22 high school students representing the Somerset region, and two very dedicated and informative staff members.  I acknowledge and wish to thank Lockyer Regional Council for assisting our council’s need by secondment of their Sports and Recreation Officer.  The students were very well behaved and enjoyed taking part in the individual and team building exercises.  I look forward to reading their feedback and answers to the assigned written task.
