Easter might be over but the activities don’t stop for the kids of the Maranoa.

About 50 boys and girls aged from 6 to 14 attended the fifth annual Brisbane Boys’ College Easter Sports Clinic at Gallas Fox Park on Tuesday 29 March.

Kids travelled from as far as Glenmorgan, Chinchilla, St George and Goondiwindi to learn some new skills in rugby union and cricket from the Brisbane Boys’ College coaches.


Jarrod Turner, Director of Alumni and Community at Brisbane Boys’ College says that the program offers kids a chance to try something new.

“Some of them it’s their first time getting involved in the sport but there’s quite a few of them that you can see some natural talent and at any level they’ve got a passion for sport,” Mr Turner said.

“We’ve got quite a strong history with Roma, with current and past families that have gone through the school and it’s always nice to get out here.”


The sports clinic finishes off a jam-packed Easter in the Country Weekend which saw locals and visitors connect with Roma in new ways.
