For all of the hockey aficionados out there who watched the Kookaburras (Australian Men’s National team) or the Hockeyroos (Australian Women’s National team) in the Tokyo Olympics recently, you will know of the proud tradition of hockey medallists through years gone by.
The concept of an ‘Olympic athlete’ became a reality for students at Beechboro Christian School recently.
Men’s Silver Medallist, Jeremy Hayward came and spoke to the students along with Hockeyroos quarter-finalist Brooke Peris, who talked about the concepts of hockey at the highest level to our Kindergarten students.
Who knows? One of these youngsters could be an Olympic hopeful one day..!
