Welcome to the new school year! I hope you have had a restful and enjoyable holiday break. I am looking forward to hitting the ground running in 2022 and hopefully a full year of representative sport.

Recent Results

During the recent break the NSW All Schools Track and Field Championships were held at Sydney Olympic Park. Inaburra had a number of students compete at this high level. Congratulations to the following students who took home medals.
