Indigenous success for Southern Hills AFL stars

Two of the rising stars in the Western Australian Football League (WAFL) Futures competition are drawing rave reviews from the Perth Football Club, with the Year 10 boys attracting large crowds from staff members and school friends!

For Tyrone H and Jamayson K, two of the highly-touted prospects in WA’s junior league, Southern Hills Christian College (SHCC) has been the steady influence over the past five years – providing support and stability to their lives inside and outside the classroom.

Several staff are now travelling to the football games to support these two indigenous stars, with Mr Joel Vallance (Dean of Students – SHCC) speaking highly of the two Perth Football Club recruits:

“These boys have God-given abilities – there is no question they are amazing footballers. We aim to provide a well-rounded education at Southern Hills, and sometimes that comes through Physical Education classes and at other times, it can be through The Rite Journey program, where we look at making thoughtful life choices and promoting a life that can be fruitful and full of meaning.”

The boys will now play a 10-week season, hoping to be chosen for senior WAFL teams and the Western Australian Under 16 state team.

Mr Paul Beacham (College Principal – SHCC) has seen the two young prodigies grow during their time at the College, and he is proud that his students have been recognised as some of WA’s youngest stars in the world of the Australian Football League (AFL):

“The game has changed a lot since I first laced up the boots. These young chaps have got speed, determination and loads of ability. Our hope is that we can continue to support them in the classroom, and in the schoolyard and be there for them in the ups and downs of life. If these two boys can complete Year 12 and graduate with us, we will be overjoyed and feel like we have played our part in preparing them for life after school.”
