On the last day of Term 3, Osborne students were not dressed in their usual green uniform. Instead, the students were dressed in footy or sports colours to show what team they barrack for.
In Prep M, 7 children were wearing yellow and black because they are Richmond supporters. Go Tigers!
There were 2 children wearing black and white because they are Collingwood supporters. Go Magpies!
There were 4 children wearing yellow and brown because they are Hawthorn supporters. Go Hawks!
There were 2 children wearing red, black and white because they are St Kilda supporters. Go Saints!
There was 1 child wearing red, blue and white because she is a Western Bulldogs supporter and 1 child was wearing purple because he is a Melbourne Storm supporter.
Mrs Mills was wearing red and blue and she is the only Melbourne Demons supporter in our class.
So the team with the most supporters in Prep M was Richmond!! Lots of little Tigers in Prep M!!
The whole school assembled in the gym, then one team at a time we proudly went up on the stage and our team’s song was played for us to sing along to and clap and cheer.
There were 18 different footy teams. Some teams like Melbourne only had a few supporters and other teams like Hawthorn, Collingwood and Essendon were the most popular and had a huge following. It was great fun and we all loved being part of the AFL excitement.
