Richmond Footy Clinic


On Wednesday the 20th of March our school had 3 visitors from the Richmond Footy Club. Their names were Dustin Martin, Daniel Jackson and Aaron Edwards. We were practising skills like hand balling, bouncing and rolling. We got split up into teams to do this. We have practice runs and races. At the end we had kick offs. Afterwards we got to ask some questions. We all had a good day. Written by James D, Patrick and Alessandro.

On Wednesday the 20th March we went to a Richmond Football Clinic. The Richmond players who came were Dustin Martin, Daniel Jackson and Aaron Edwards. They showed us lots of skills. Some of the skills were hand balling, bouncing the football, kicking goals and races. After that we did questions and got their signatures. Then they tried to kick a goal from on side of the oval. They all got a point. Overall we had a great time. Written by Isabella, Tiana and Penny.

On Wednesday the 20th March three Richmond Players came to our school. They were Dustin Martin, Daniel Jackson and Aaron Edwards. First they told us information about footy and themselves. Secondly we did some hand passes. In all the relays we did a practice round before we raced. There were seven teams. Thirdly we got into a full group and did a footy competition. The last goal went to Ella (a Richmond supporter). Finally we sat down altogether and the kids asked questions and they answered them. At the end we got their signatures. We all ended up having such a great time with them and learnt lots. Written by Jennifer, Atara and Rose.

    Hi Grade 3/4D,

    I loved looking through your photos of the footy day! It looked like a great footy clinic. There’s an amazing spread of teams that you barrack for but I do have a major problem!!!!!!!!! I couldn’t find 1 Collingwood jumper amongst the photos!!! Now from that comment you can obviously guess who I barrack for and who I think will win the grand final!
    Great to see you all having so much fun!
    Mr Wakeling

    Hi grade 3/4D,

    I loved the footy clinic, it was so fun! I got to get a photo with gemma and one of the football players and it was really funny because he was really tall and we were really small and we were like a big armrest. I go for Essendon and i bet you know who i thinks going to win.
    I hope there going to come again soon!

    best wishes

    Dear Mr wakeling,
    i agree that collingwood is the best team
    but my nana is a swans girl
    and she says that the swans will get the premierships again this year
    i dont agree with her she is very wrong collingwood will win the premiership
    this year not the swans go collinwood!!!!!

    Hi 3/4D

    That was really fun having 3 richmond players
    coming to our school to teach us more
    about footy. That was even better when we
    had to kick goals. GO SAINTS!!!!!
