Wananami Remote Community School situated in Kupungarri Community hosted a small Interschool Athletics Challenge against Wangkatjungka Remote Community School on the 13th August 2014 as part of their Smarter than Smoking Active Community Program. The Wangkatjungka athletes traveled in from Mt House Wilderness Camp on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert and were keen to display their athleticism to the kids from the Back Ranges Country. The day included cross country races, 50 and 100 m sprints, team games and a tug of war competition which included students, teaching staff and community members. The day was cool and the weather perfect for running. Everyone enjoyed a sausage sizzle lunch followed by a swim at the famous Manning Gorge.
