On 4th and 11th September 2018, 66 students and 10 teachers from 10 various public schools around Melbourne’s west participated in CDC Victoria’s ‘School Champions Day’.

These annual curriculum days are awarded to school captains or potential leaders for their continuous efforts at becoming respected leaders in their schools. The day’s activities give students the chance to learn important themes of ‘Respect’ and ‘Leadership’ from current and past sporting champions

The day started out at Werribee Football Club (WFC), where the Year 6 students received a tour of the latest state-of-the art football premises, kicked some footy and met with VFL’s Multicultural Ambassador, Brad Xavier and Social Inclusion Coordinator and ex-VFL player, Sammi Malual. Brad Xavier; who is of Indian heritage and Sammi Malual, who was from formerly from South Sudan; both shared very different yet courageous stories of getting into the VFL and being passionate about giving back to their local footy and Wyndham communities.

Stories like Brad’s and Sammi’s showcase Australia embracing a diverse ‘Aussie’ culture while keeping strong ties with their heritage. CDC Victoria is proud to be able to work closely with Werribee Football Club and support multiculturalism while empowering the youth during our ‘School Champions Day’.

Students also get to visit Melbourne’s iconic sporting venues of interest such as Etihad stadium, MCG or Tennis World.
