Victoria’s most recent lockdown has impacted us all in different ways, for students at SEDA College Werribee, it means they are no longer able to assist The Huddle with footy clinics, North Melbourne Football Club match days and community events.
Despite the latest restrictions, the SEDA students and The Huddle instead traded football for trivia and games, albeit virtually.
The day was kicked off with a ‘fast 5’ game, which saw students testing their knowledge on pop culture and sport to get in their five answers to the topic the quickest.
One student showcased his North Melbourne player knowledge by getting in quick, only to reveal he had an advantage being friends with first year North player, Eddie Ford.
SEDA College teacher, Daniel Quinn, said it was important to maintain connection and fun.
“The SEDA students love working and interacting with The Huddle staff out in the community. Unfortunately, COVID restrictions have limited the scope for our students to work in the community so anytime we can work with The Huddle online is always positive and appreciated,” Quinn said.
“We are grateful and fortunate to have received such great support from the club whether it was True North sessions with Emma Kearney in 2020 or interactive sessions with Mufaro, Mustafa or Ifrah in 2021. The sessions are always enjoyable and provide variety and engagement which is crucial while we are required to learn from home.
“At SEDA AFL Werribee we really value the partnership with North Melbourne Kangaroos and the opportunity it provides for us to work with the Community Department and The Huddle.”
