Tunbubudla tops the cup

Contributed by Peter Voight

BEERWAH State High recently celebrated its eighth annual Academic & Cultural Cup. 

Teachers and students were entertained by an array of talent which included performances by the multi-award-winning BSHS Dance Company, an engaging performance by Beerwah Actors’ Collective, grooving tunes by Beerwah High Concert Band and Beerwah High Stage Band, and an electric rock performance by resident student band ‘Off beat’.

Congratulations to Team Tunbubudla, who have made their way to the top of the Academic & Cultural Cup for an amazing fifth time. Their proud maroon mortarboard once again rests atop the beautiful Academic & Cultural Champions’ trophy for another twelve months. With several tied categories this year, 15 male and female year level champions added their names to the BSHS Scholastic Almanac. The beautiful leather-bound book of parchment paper was signed by our champions, adding to the history of age champions past held within its pages. 

Our 2022 champions were extremely surprised by the generous prizes and medallions they received thanks to the incredible support of local businesses. A massive thank you to Vianta Espresso & Bar, Baan Thai, Aussie World, Blast Aqua Park Coolum, Australia Zoo, Beerwah Flowers & Gifts, Spinners Bar & Bowl Caloundra, Laserzone Kawana, The Coffee Club, Beerwah Newsagency, and the Beerwah State High School P&C Association for their continued support.
