Players, coaches and officials from the Port Adelaide Football Club have visited the Eyre Peninsula this week as part of the club’s 2020 Community Camp. PLHS was privileged to receive a visit in the Gym yesterday from two current players – defender Joel Garner and father/son rookie Trent Burgoyne – plus former player Wade Thompson and Powerful Futures Program Coordinator Braedon Talbot.
All four representatives were relaxed and generous with their time. They shared information about their personal backgrounds, football careers and healthy eating/exercise programs. After answering a few questions from the staff and students in attendance, the players provided souvenir posters then arranged and facilitated a hybrid handball/basketball game on court.
Many thanks to the Port Adelaide Football Club for making their people available – they were excellent ambassadors for their club and we wish them well for the upcoming season and their 150 year celebrations.
