The Boys and their recent trip to Ballarat

9 May 2012 2:39 PM -

On Wednesday 9th May we conducted a cross cultural event for the Ballarat Junior Football Club (Swans) in Ballarat.

The evening was instigated by the Ballarat Football Club who should be commended for their initiative in developing their young players social awareness as well as their football skills.

The Club conducted a Raffle to raise money for the foundation. The Essendon Football Club once again supported us by donating a signed jumper, players boots and other items for the raffle.

The evening involved a session on comparing the life of a child growing up in Wadeye and that of a child growing up in Ballarat. The  boys joined the Swans in their training session and the medium of football opened doors and mouths and broke down cultural and language barriers. Following training we were invited to join the club in a BBQ, ending a very enjoyable and socially rewarding experience.
