Mon 23rd April
In April, Townsville Grammar School student, Nikolas Mitchell, will be attending the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Reception in Townsville. Nikolas has been invited along as a special guest of the Governor and the Deputy Premier. The function will precede the Townsville Commonwealth Games event of the Basketball game on the Saturday night.
The talented 15 year old recently won the 2018 Townsville Australia Day Junior Sports Award, and was awarded the Townsville Grammar School Middle School’s Sportsman of the Year in 2017.
Nikolas has made many contributions to the local sporting scene across a variety of sports over the last few years, including Choi Kwang Do, Rugby Union, OzTag, Rugby League as well as School sports including swimming, cross country and athletics.
Nikolas also organised fundraising for the McGrath Foundation. In June last year, he organised all local junior teams of the Townsville rugby league, from Under 6 through to the North Queensland Cowboys to wear pink socks as part of the McGrath Foundation’s Pull on Your Socks campaign, which enabled the Townsville Junior Rugby League Clubs to raise approximately $70,000.
Nikolas has already attended the launch of the Festival 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
