Football unites Colleges

Football unites Colleges

The match always proves to be a fantastic day for boys of both Colleges.

CBC celebrated the unifying power of sport this week, as the College joined forces with Clontarf Aboriginal College with a friendly lunchtime game of Australian Rules Football.

CBC students travelled to Clontarf for this year's match, and the teams were randomly selected for the mixed school social game.

Boys from both Colleges took the opportunity to make some new friends during the match and there was a lot of laughter heard on the field as white cockatoos wheeled overhead from the scrub surrounding the picturesque riverfront campus.

The annual game has become a highlight of the College's annual NAIDOC Week celebrations, which encourage boys to learn about the world's oldest culture.

Activities continued at CBC, with HASS teacher, Mr Gary Bonney, who is a Wongi man from the Goldfields-Esperance region, teaching boys the basics of playing the didgeridoo.

NAIDOC Week provides an engaging lens through which boys can explore the College's Touchstones, particularly Liberating Education and Inclusive Community.
