Declan Corby from St Francis Xavier’s Regional Catholic School got to run out on the field with the Crows at the AFL Preliminary Final held in Adelaide. The Year 3 student won a competition run by the Crows Children Foundation and was selected from 500 entries for his dream in being the first amputee to play in the AFL. Declan met the team and coach Don Pyke the day before the game and was interviewed by the media. He was presented with a guernsey by his favourite player Eddie Betts.

Students in action

From a sleepover to raise money for the homeless, to running on the field with the Crows... Catholic school students have been busy in recent months.
