Over the last few weeks, Kildare has hosted the SAPSASA Year 6/7 AFL North-East team trials coached by one of our Physical Education teachers, Miss McAteer.
Students from other schools in the North-East district including St Pius X, St Paul's Lutheran, Dernancourt Primary and Northfield Primary School came in numbers to Kildare to earn themselves a spot on the team.
Thank you to all students who trialled. It is with great pride that we announce the 11 talented Year 7 students from Kildare College have been selected as part of the squad of 16.
The students showed great skill and enthusiasm with a variety of playing experience. Miss McAteer stated, "What got them over the line was their willingness to give it a go and try their hardest in every contest. They showed great teamwork and leadership skills and I look forward to coaching the team over the next few weeks to refine their skills even further."
The team will take part in two more training sessions before the competition over three days in November.
