Melbourne FC Drop In

Western Port Year 9 and 10 students were lucky enough to have Tom and Oscar McDonald from the Melbourne Football Club, come and talk to them about their background and pathway through their football career. With our students about to start their subject selections for 2017, this was a great opportunity to hear from the players about the importance of focusing on their educational pathway, it was interesting to learn that the top four teams of 2015 were the top teams in encouraging and supporting players in carrying out some form of further education.

The McDonald boys are currently both completing tertiary courses to prepare themselves for life after football. The students also got an insight into what a football career is really like, and what their daily routine involves.
