This is your year to take what you deserve and hold that trophy up high. From all your gals at the offi ce. xxx RED Cliffs Secondary College students swapped the class- room for Aerodrome Ovals on Wednesday, for the school’s an- nual house athletics carnival. Representing Allungah (yel- low), Bindaree (blue), Terra- gong (green) and Warragai (red) houses with pride, more than 300 students participated in the day. Acting as selection trials for the upcoming interschool event, RCSC sports co-ordinator Ben Tallent was pleased with the day. “For many kids if they aren’t in the Little Athletics Club this is their chance to showcase their ability,” Ben said.

FOR the past three weeks Mildura West Pri- mary School students have been participating in AFL clinics through the national Sporting Schools program. Organised by two AFL game development officers, the sessions included decision and skill-based drills and games of AFL 9s. Aiming to intro- duce AFL at an early age, Sunraysia’s AFL Victoria Football Devel- opment manager Trev- or Ryan said the clinics were well received. “The students enjoy doing a different activi- ty outside normal class- es,” Trevor said. “This gives them an introduc- tion to AFL, and hope- fully a few of the kids will join Auskick or a junior football club.” Trevor said Sunray- sia primary schools are welcome to sign up for the clinics, with more information available by contacting 0427 750 283, or by visiting www.sportingschools. gov.au.
