Footy Boot Donation Drive for Indigenous Students

Footy Boot

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of Caulfield Grammar School students, staff and families, more than 200 pairs of footy boots were collected to support Indigenous students in Kakadu, Northern Territory.

Students Murphy, Nikita and Yasuri collaborated with the Caulfield Grammar School foundation to implement the Footy Boot Donation Drive. The purpose of the Foundation is to inspire a culture of philanthropy across Caulfield Grammar School, and this initiative was a wonderful demonstration of the global citizenship and empathy inherent in the school’s students and the broader community.

Students participating in the 2022 Expeditions Program to Kakadu will hopefully see the impact of this philanthropic initiative for themselves, and they may even recognise their own pair of footy boots!

Murphy (at left) said of the experience: “I was lucky to visit Jabiru earlier in the year with our Year 9 Regional Expedition program and while there I noticed that the kids could do with some football gear. My goal for my Year 9 Community Project was to make sure every child in Jabiru received a pair of football boots so they could enjoy playing AFL with proper shoes. I learned from this experience that the people in our community are generous and willing to donate to a good cause.”
