On Thursday 19th February, two Western Bulldogs players, Marcus Bontempelli, also known as “The Bont” and Jack Redpath came to our school to do some footy drills with a group of excited grade 5/6 students. We began with question time. Students wanted to know their favourite teammates, the number of injuries that had experienced among other questions. After about half an hour, the questions wrapped up and we went outside for some footy drills. We first did a lap of the oval and then we got some footballs for “kick to kick”. We split into two teams and did competition goal kicking! Marcus was in charge of one team and Jack was in charge of the other. When the session finished, we all got their autographs! We were incredibly lucky to have them visit our school.
