Essendon Footballers Visit

On Tuesday 11th of March we had two very special visitors to our school. Kyle Hardingham and Nick Kommer came to talk to the grade 5/6 students. Even if you are not an Essendon supporter it was fantastic to have two professional AFL players visit New Gisborne Primary. They came to explain a little bit about what it was like to be an AFL player. We heard all about their training routines, how important nutrition was as well as the sacrifices they had made to achieve their goal of becoming a professional football player.
The students asked lots of interesting questions and at the end some Essendon fans were lucky enough to get their footy jumpers or footballs signed.

Football players visit schools to publicise AFL and their team but also to inform and educate us.

Do you think it is worthwhile having them visit schools?
