Queen's Baton Relay comes to Cairns High


Students and staff were very lucky to welcome a lovely young lady, Lauren, to our school on Friday morning 16 March 2018.

Lauren carried the baton out of Cairns State High School's newly opened MacKenzie Walk, onto Grafton Street and up past Crosswell Hall and our oval. Lauren is a keen sportsperson from Whitfield State School and she showed the baton around to students, some of who were lucky enough to touch it.

​Cairns High students Olivia and Cooper were also lucky enough to carry the baton in other sections of the relay course on the day.

Not long now until the GC2018 Commonwealth Games kick off next month and Cairns, as an official Event City, will also be on display. Make sure you check out the events on the Cairns Regional Council website, many of which Cairns High students will participate in.
