As the 2019 AFL season is soon approaching, we had 4 players from Carlton Football Club visit our school.
We have many supporters of the Aussie rules footie game such as the Collingwood Magpies, Essendon, Richmond and West Coast Eagles just to name a few. Our students were thrilled to see elite sporting stars right here at the College. The players were able to provide information and encourage children to participate in junior/youth football, as well as physical activity generally, and give older children reasons to stay involved with the game.
By participating in school visits and game development activities, players encourage children to be interested in Australian rules football and emphasise the benefits associated with playing a sport such as teamwork, leadership and resilience. We wish the boys all the very best in the upcoming season.
