Students in year three to six will be able to participate in the competition.
“We are expecting 3500 visitors to Goulburn with 120 primary school teams attending,” Seaman said.
“We were very grateful for the Soldiers Club to come on board. It gives the students an opportunity to meet students from different schools and dioceses and build that Catholic school spirit.”
Broadbent added that it was pleasing to see both SS Peter and Paul primary school and St Joseph’s primary school come together for this project and ensure its smooth success.
“We want to make sure all of the visitors have a warm and welcoming stay in Goulburn”.
