Rachael Leamy | 2018 BOAB QUEST WINNER


Hi my name is Rachael Leamy and I am the Boab Entrant for Derby District High School in 2018. I spent the first four years of my life in Fitzroy Crossing and then moved to Derby. I went to primary school at Holy Rosary School and attended boarding school from year eight until year twelve.

Growing up in Derby has been fantastic and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Working as a teacher at Derby DHS now is amazing, and it has been great to come back and work in such a fantastic community.

The funds raised will go towards upgrading the play grounds at Derby DHS. This will ensure that the children have a high quality play environment to promote purposeful and fun play. I look forward to working with and supporting such an amazing community.

Courtney Perry | 2018 Boab Quest Runner Up


Hi my name is Courteney Perry and I am entering as a Boab quest entrant for the Derby Speedway Club. I was born and raised in Derby and love this town I call home. Some of my hobbies include horse riding, fishing/camping, spending time with friends/family and racing speedway. Speedway has been a huge part of my family for as long as I can remember, both my parents and my 2 brothers have raced. Now I have my niece and nephews all racing either cars or go carts. The Derby Speedway is a family orientated club where all members of the family are encouraged to get involved while providing spectators with some fast and furious action.

The club takes pride in showcasing our home town of Derby to other drivers, competitors, spectators and tourists with our main events of the year attracting drivers from Albany in the South to Kununurra in the North. With the money raised we hope to further improve our grounds, track, infrastructure and continue to provide a safe and fun environment for people of all ages of our great town and surrounds.
