What do you do when you live and breathe footy? You write about it! Congratulations to Anthony Hanlen from Year 9, who is a finalist in the Year 9/10 division of the national ‘What Matters?’ writing competition for his piece on (you guessed it) footy! During remote learning our English faculty set our students the task of entering the competition, and Anthony’s entry has been shortlisted!

Anthony is also an accomplished AFL player: a member of the Sydney Swans Academy since 2017, which fosters the development of young, talented AFL players throughout NSW, and he’s represented the school and the region.

Well done, Anthony! Your English teachers Mrs Smith and Ms Collis are very impressed!
