Primary schools travelled from across the region to take part in the gala day, including Bonville, Sawtell, Tyalla, Coffs Harbour, Mullaway, Boambee, Kororo, Urunga, Nambucca Heads, Narranga and Frank Partridge.

Both Narranga teams performed well on the day to advance to the next round of the state-wide competition.

Kororo girls and Nambucca Heads boys also progressed to the next round of the state knockout.
