The Hunter Education Region is one of ten across New South Wales, extending north to Taree (Manning District),
Maitland and to its west (Hunter District), Greater Newcastle (Newcastle District) and south to Lake
Munmorah (Lakes District).

The Hunter high schools ‘Let’s Play Bowls’ competition targets some seventy schools in an open competition for both male and female Years seven to eleven students.

The team from Hunter River High School comprised of students from Years eight and ten, Ryan Jonovski, Blair
Soars, Kane Chester and Zac Nicholls, who on Monday 16 October played and won the 2017 Finals of the
‘Let’s Play Bowls’ competition at Lambton Bowling Club, under the coaching and supervision of Mr Guider.

Mr Guider explains, “The High School Lawn Bowls Competition, Let’s Play Bowls, is in its third year and
Hunter River High School are this year’s winner.”

The four person competition is played over two sets of eight ends, which creates the opportunity for any side to win.

Players are required to rotate positions prior to each match. This challenges the players to deliver a variety of bowls during the games.

The Hunter River High School side included Raymond Terrace Bowling Club representative players, Blair
Soars and Zac Nicholls, as well as Ryan Jonovski and Kane Chester.

Hunter River High School defeated Great Lakes College Forster in their semi-final and then had a seesawing match in the final against Toronto High School. An unbeatable bowl on the last end by Kane Chester, saw the Hunter River High School side come out on top.

The winners were awarded a cheque for $1000.00, which the student proudly presented to their Hunter River High School.
