Keep the rain coming

The recent rainfall has been a great sight to see, even though it has meant some weekend sport has been cancelled.

ON STRIKE: Teachers and staff from two Bathurst schools walked off the job on Monday in protest against a proposed enterprise agreement.

In the past few months, Bathurst has suffered from a lack of rain but that has changed now with rain forecast for both Tuesday and Wednesday.

It now means the grass will be kept green and fields surrounding the city will be looking lush.

Bathurst always looks at its best when green and full of life. 

Parade is asking for more rain. 

Not all the time but enough to keep the city look green.  

Dramatic low scoring game

While the scoreline might reveal the game as a low-scoring affair, Australia’s 6-0 win over England in the Rugby League World Cup final was nothing short of exciting and dramatic.

It was encouraging to see the English stick with the Aussies for an entire 80 minutes, which almost every team failed to do when playing the Kangaroos.

It was ultimately Boyd Cordner’s 15th minute try that prove the difference, as the Kangaroos claimed a record 11th world cup title.

Registration open for camp 

Young Life’s summer camp is just over five weeks away and is open to high school students in year 9 to 12. 

The camp, which runs from January 14 to 20, will see children will travel to the Snowy Mountain region of NSW and stay at a campsitewhich is a ski resort in the winter and makes for a well-equipped, fun and functional campsite in the summer.

Campers will spend the week water-skiing, hiking, rock climbing and abseiling, as young people try things they’ve never done before, overcome fears and push themselves to another level.

Each night of the camp has games, music and talks that challenges campers to take a deeper look at what life is all about from a Christian perspective. 

Contact Bathurst Young Life area manager Ansia Klavins at ansia@younglife.org.au for registration and any further enquires.
