It’s been a varied and interesting start to Term 4 for all the Bigga Public School students.

Grandparents and Special Friends Day was celebrated on Thursday, November 2.

On Friday, October 27, the children competed with students from schools at Binda, Laggan, Tambelin and Taralga at the Taralga Showground at their annual small schools sports competition, which began in the 1920s.

All the students were very successful in their events, winning many ribbons.

It was also the winner of the Track Events and Lucy Marshall was joint Senior Girl Champion.
