Last week the 52nd annual interschool challenge was held between Walcha and Dorrigo High Schools.

Once again Dorrigo proved victorious and took home the trophy with a final total score of 58 points to Walcha’s 38 points however a fun time was had by both attendees and spectators alike.

Walcha families were stretched to billet the 87 Dorrigo students this year. 

“It is great to see such enthusiasm for this event and we took one of the biggest teams ever over there,” said Dorrigo High School principal Ms Hutton.

“It is good to see the variety of opportunities provided from athletics, chess, soccer, touch, basketball, golf through to poetry slam, battle of the bands and debating.” 

Walcha Central School deputy principal Simon Warden congratulated Dorrigo on their  win.

“Thank you to the organisers and to all the eager participants who have made the 2017 competition a success,” he said.

Walcha Central School put together one of the most comprehensive programs for the challenge to date.
