Spring is in the air, and so is a group of 80 Central Coast Grammar School student athletes who are flying from Australia to tour the west coast of North America.
The Grade 10 and 11 students, whose school is located one hour north of Sydney, will be visiting the Comox Valley April 13-14. Other stops include Vancouver, Whistler, Los Angeles, Seattle and Hawaii.
One of the lead teachers organizing the tour, Mark Steele, spent 2013 at Highland Secondary School on a teaching exchange during which he thoroughly enjoyed the people, lifestyle and beauty of the Comox Valley. The students are being graciously hosted by families from the Highland and Isfeld Secondary communities, notes Highland teacher-coach Colin Tinga.
While in the Comox Valley they will be playing various sport matches against our local athletes. “Come on out and enjoy these high level athletes in action,” said Tinga.
