This year, Trina has applied for Soccer in Term 2 and Hockey in Term 3. This term the grant will provide the school with more soccer equipment and a soccer coach, affiliated with Adelaide United Club, who will deliver an in depth soccer skills program, with Trina’s assistance, during Friday’s PE lessons Week 5,7,8, and 9.
