Footy Day

On Wednesday September 19th we celebrated our annual ‘Footy Day’ here at school. The students all came along dressed in their favourite footy team colours and completed football based activities. Everyone especially enjoyed the coin trail and also the staff vs students football game, that took place at lunchtime.

5S had a wonderful day!
