The Junee Juggernauts now record their three-point shots on the basketball court from a sleek new scoring bench thanks to the Inland Rail Community and Sponsorships Donation program; while Illabo Public School students are living the Chinese proverb: “Life begins the day you start a garden”, by learning the value of growing a vegetable patch from seed to table.
