Eagle Foley flies in for visit
West Coast player Luke Foley was kicking goals for kid’s sport when he visited Bertram Primary School last week.
A group of Year 3 to 6 students learnt from the footballer about the game and about the right attitude needed to reach their dreams.
Foley said his visit was part of the Eagle’s “Rock My School” program.
“It’s really important that we give back to the community and get kids involved in footy and sport in general,” he said.
“It was all about having fun, showing them a few skills. And they showed me a game they did with their teacher.”
Foley said many of the students showed promise with their football skills.
Sports teacher Alpar Myers said the school wanted to support the children’s social and emotional development and physical skills.
“Having someone like Luke come in to share his experiences on a higher level gives the kids a good role model,” Mr Myers said.
“There are some aspiring to be AFL players, so having Luke come in was a good way of modelling the right behaviours and attitudes.”
