Three students from Gladstone Park’s School of the Good Shepherd are hoping to make a lasting impression when they represent Victoria at the Pacific School Games in Adelaide in December.
Twins Dre and Zyon, 12, and Charlotte, 11, have been selected in the 12 and under TeamVic touch football side which will compete against teams from 15 countries.
The students were chosen for the team after excelling in a series of try-outs through TeamVic and School Sports Victoria.
Physical education co-ordinator David Kehagias said he was proud that the school had students invited to be part of the 14-student Pacific Games team.
He said all three students had taken part in touch football sessions with players from Melbourne Storm, while Dre and Zyon have represented the school at inter-school sports as grade 4 students.
