Geelong Football Club Players' Visit
On Tuesday, our Year 3 and 4 students had a visit from two Geelong Football players – Tom Lonergan and rookie, Jack Henry - who were at Junior School to promote their community initiative, ‘Healthy Heroes’.
The program, specifically designed for Grade 3 and 4 students, aims to engage, educate and empower young people to make good choices about their health and well-being, with key focuses on nutrition, water and physical activity.
Along with the players, Education Officer Rachel Brooks provided students with a presentation aimed to challenge students about how the choices they make will improve their health and fitness. Some students had the opportunity to get an autograph, which was a great thrill.
Keeping the football theme going, aspiring AFL footballer and current Geelong Falcons player, Ki Copland, also attended the afternoon activities and was interviewed about his life and his faith by Mr Rice during our school assembly later in the afternoon. The opportunity to listen to the experience and aspirations of such a positive young role model was appreciated by our students and teachers.
