Ella Green & Hon. MP Sussan Ley


The final Friday of Term 3 Parkview hosted a visit from the Australian Government's Sporting Schools Program. The Program, through which our school has recently hosted After School AFL, acquired resources for the hosting of After School Touch Football and Tennis and have also received funding to host After School Activities in Rugby League, Netball, Soccer and Rugby Union, celebrated its first birthday and chose Parkview PS to acknowledge the milestone. It was quite a celebration with Australian Rugby hosting a clinic for the children and bringing along Olympic Gold Medallist Ellia Green to meet the children. Ellia's visit was an amazing experience for our children as she shared her Rio Olympics Gold Medal, spoke to children for a long period of time and signed scores of autographs. The visit also featured a visit from our local Federal Member,  Hon. MP Sussan Ley, Minister for Health & Aged Care and Minister for Sport.
