TOUCH FOOTBALL COMPETITION
This term, a group of students participated in the Tableland
District Interschool Districts Touch Football Competition. There
were teams from all schools across the Tablelands District -
students from year 8 through to year 12 participated in the MSB
Senior team as we didn’t have enough juniors or seniors to field
a team in both Junior & Senior competitions. The Senior
Competition Grand Final was taken out by MSB, playing against
Atherton High’s team who were a year 11’s & 12’s. The final
score was MSB 14 to Atherton High 7. Students put in a lot of
effort and were committed throughout the season. Maryanne
won the Best & fairest Player and Jim received
Player of the Series. MSB in conjunction with Herberton tool out

future projects. Having my artwork displayed in a gallery like the tanks, was beyond words’.
2014 VICTORIOUS MIGHTY MAGPIES
The Under 14 Herberton Magpies Rugby League team, that many of our boys form the backbone of, have just
completed their season undefeated and won the Minor Premiership. This is an impressive feat for our boys
and we should all be very proud of them.
On Saturday 6th September the Under 14 team went up against the Atherton Roosters in the Grand Final held
at their home ground of Wondecla Oval. In a close match they came out victorious with a 1 point lead to take
the match. Final score was 35-34. Player of the match was Richard and Lester was top goal kicker
and top try scorer.
We hope to finalise enrolments for 2015 by the end of term 3. Year 10 is nearly full and there are still vacancies for 4 or 5 more in each of years 9, 11 and 12. There are still 25 boarding spaces available across Year 7 & 8.
