The NAIDOC Touch Football Knockout was held at Illawarra Sports High School on Tuesday 22 July. It was a beautiful, sunny day and the Albion Park High team had lots of fun representing their school. We had eight Indigenous students from Years 7-9, including boys and girls on the team.
They were: Jay Henry, Kade Lucas, Zac Gliddon, Dallas Harrison, Jordan Curties-Henry, Rideika Wright, Jemesha Curties-Henry and Tye West.
The Albion Park High School team worked really well together as a team and played brilliantly. We played three games against Dapto High School, Oak Flats High School and Warilla High School. We beat Dapto High School 6-1, lost to Oak Flats High School 9-4 and drew with Warilla High School 7-7. A big thanks to Mr Blake and Matt Hawkins who organised the team and took them on the day. NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. NAIDOC Week is used as a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and an opportunity to recognise Indigenous Australians positive contributions to our country and our society.
