2022 Socktober Fundraiser
What an amazing day we had coming together as a school to think about others to celebrate Socktober. The students got to wear their favourite team jerseys and played a game of soccer using a ball made out of socks, material, plastic and ribbon. It was an interesting experience playing with these balls, like children in Ethiopia do. Students shared that it made them realise how lucky they are to have equipment to play soccer. Thank you to Miss Brownlow, Ms Armstrong and the FIA team for putting together a great day for an amazing cause.
