Canberra Raiders Come To Visit
Posted on 15 Aug 2018
Four members of the Canberra Raiders, including the captain Jarrod Croker visited our school this week. They spent time meeting and chatting with the students, signing posters, kicking and throwing 'footies' and they even left us with some great Raiders souvenirs. The students had a fantastic time, some even meeting their favourite football idols. Goooo Raiders and thanks so much! We look forward to another visit.
