Agenda Item #5 Matters of Public Interest

During the Australian Futsal Associations National School Futsal Championship, Jade Godby (Lowood High School) was selected from Queensland City’s under 16’s team to play for Australia’s under 17’s team for the youth USA tour from 6th to 22nd July 2023.  Throughout the tour, the team played teams from San Jose before competing in the US National Futsal Championship holding teams from all over the USA.  The Australian teams received training from experienced coaches regarding skills, gameplay, teamwork and futsal knowledge with all tour teams gaining valuable insight and experience.

At age 12, Burnett boy Nate Perrett is already one of Australia’s best motocross riders. Nate travelled to Darwin on 11 to 16 July to compete in the Australian Junior Motocross Championships, earning a close second place in the 10 to 12-year-old 65cc event.  Nat punched his ticket to Darwin after becoming the 9 to 12-years-old 85cc Queensland champion earlier this year.  Nate’s father Brent said that, from the moment his son turned two years old, motocross had been the only thing on his mind.  Nat’s family are from Kilcoy.
