 The conflict between the National Sports Council and Blackman and Gollop Primary School could finally be at an end.

  This follows a directive from the Minister of Sport, Stephen Lashley, that the school had not broken any existing written rule of the NSC and that the children must be allowed to take part in the Pine Hill Dairy netball competition without impediment.

  Since the tournament was launched three weeks ago, the NSC has been trying to get Blackman and Gollop to drop their B team from the Pamala Proverbs zone since the team contained class four girls which the NSC considered to be contrary to an agreement made in 2014 with some of the PE teachers.
