Richmond football players visit

The Better Buddies program is supported by Richmond, an Aussie Rules Football team. Today we were visited by two of their players, Brett O’Hanlon and Cadeyn Williams.
They shared their stories from playing as kids to the excitement of playing at the senior level.
They told us about the importance of looking after team mates, training hard and eating a healthy diet.
We were inspired to be Better Buddies towards our class mates and work hard to follow our dreams.

Fathers’ Day Breakfast and Footy day

Mark
This morning the Dad’s came to join us for the Fathers’ Day breakfast at school to have a sausage sizzle and hot coffee. We [the kids] mostly played and ate but then we had the raffle. I love the Father’s day breakfast. It’s great that the Dads get to come to school so they can see what is going on.

Footy Day was fun because of the variety of activities that we participated in and I enjoyed them a lt. The longest kick was a challenge but it was great.

Today was super good fun. The Dads joined us for breakfast and then we had AFL Football activities during the day. The variety of activities were fun.

The footy day activities were really fun and I especially enjoyed the Specky Magee activity. That was where you ran and dived onto the high jump mat and marked the ball.

One of my favourite parts of the day was meeting Darren Jolly, who plays for Collingwood. I got his autograph on my football jumper. I loved dressing up in our favourite teams colours.

I am a Sports leader at our school and today we got to run Footy Day. I helped to organise the activities which included longest kick, Specky Magee, handball competition footy relays. I thought that everyone behaved well throughout the activities and demonstrated great skills.
