Footy Fun Day


It was fantastic to see, hear and feel all the excitement around the school as everyone was arriving in their footy jumpers and colours. The face painters were worked overtime as so many children wanted their team colours on their face. Somehow teachers survived in their classrooms until 11.00 am. After recess all the children gathered in the hall in their footy teams. As usual the Bulldogs were clearly the best represented but most of the teams had at least one representative.

Each of the teams took it in turns to sing their team song and answer questions as well as finding out who won prizes from the many competitions that the children had entered.

We were joined in the hall by Alex Jesaulenko, past Carlton player, Roarke Smith, Western Bulldogs player and some SEDA students who voted on each team’s supporters singing of their team song. All of the teams did a fantastic job with Collingwood proving victorious on the day.
