Hockey Australia Visit
Yandeyarra School has been lucky enough to receive visits from Hockey Australia for several years. During August, three hockey superstars visited Yandeyarra, along with Shane Tonkin, to practise their hockey skills and play a game.
The three athletes visiting were Tim Deavin (former Kookaburra, Olympian and Commonwealth games gold medallist), Stephanie Kershaw (Hockeyroo, Olympian and Commonwealth games player), and Hayley Padget (Hockeyroo and Commonwealth games gold medallist).
It was a great opportunity for Yandeyarra students to put their hockey skills into practise. Our students were very impressed with the extensive travel and worldwide tours the athletes had done, and were pleased to show them our community.
FMG, a key sponsor of the regional visit program, also joined and provided a delicious BBQ lunch.
The skills development sessions were enjoyed by all, as was the highly competitive game!
Thank you to Hockey Australia and FMG for your continuing support with this great program.
