Hot conditions test players
Manjimup Senior High School boys put their talent to the test last week with a football game against students from a Perth school.
Years 9 and 10 students from Manjimup Senior High School’s football program took on a team from Warwick Senior High School as part of the visiting school’s tour around the State.
Manjimup Senior High School physical education teacher Josh Rayson said the game on Wednesday was restarting a tradition that fell away about five years ago.
“The heat did us no favours and it was our students’ first game since the end of the Lower South West Football League season,” he said.
“It was an opportunity for them to test themselves against other students and develop connections and build on our school culture.”
The game was a reward for the students.
“It was a great endeavour for them,” Rayson said.
“There are some kids that show great individual talent and we saw some flashes of brilliance.”
Rayson said he hoped to continue the games each year, which would align with Warwick Senior High School’s tour.
“We have also had games against Clontarf boys in the past,” he said.
