Debating: The debate was held at the Snowy Recreation Hall following a welcome to the visitors by the headmaster. The topic was "That scientists do more harm than good". Monaro was the government and after a very close contest gained a win of 241 points to 239.
Athletics: Monaro gained a convincing win of 32 points to 12. Doug McGufficke and Artur Stolz broke records in the 440 yds and High Jump respectively.
100 yards: R. Chalker (M) first, D. Geddes (B) 2nd, T. Hawkins (B) 3rd. Chalker's time of 11.1 seconds was good, considering the slowness of the track.

High Jump: A. Stolz (M) 1st, B. Morton (M) 2nd, H. Solomon (B) 3rd.
Broad Jump: D. McGufficke (M) 1st F. Hickling (M) 2nd, M. Hader (M) 3rd.
Football: The football was below the usual standard seen in these matches, and Monaro could have extended its win by better blackline movements. The final scores were Monaro 14 (R. Chalker 3 tries, A. Stolz 1, D. McGregor 1 goal) to Bega 10 (D. Geddes 2 tries, A. Slater 2 goals).
