Palm Beach Currumbin State High School will travel to Victoria to compete against other elite high school teams in the prestigious Victorian School Sport AFL Premier League.
This marks the second year that PBC will make the trip south to play against other premier AFL Schools such as Box Hill and Hallam Secondary Colleges.
Having recently securing their second consecutive schools of excellence premiership, PBC are looking to take their football to another level said the school’s AFL excellence program director Neil Mackay.
“Our program’s goal is for student players to realise their sporting dreams. To assist the development of our players physically and mentally we want to challenge them to step up to the standards associated with Victorian schoolboys’ football,” he said.
After a successful 2014 school football season, Palm Beach Currumbin State High School’s AFL sports excellence program will return for this season with a new gold sponsor, the Southport Sharks.
“Our philosophy has synergy with the Sharks and their involvement in the NEAFL competition. Kudos to the Sharks on seeing and supporting the bigger picture, developing local juniors,” Mackay said.
Southport Football Manager Jason Cotter explained his support of the Palm Beach Currumbin school excellence program.
“We are happy to continue to support PBC’s AFL program. I think that the results that they achieve with their young men speak for themselves,” he said.
“Supporting PBC’s involvement in the Premier League is also in line with our charter as an organisation that we continue to foster the growth and promotion of AFL football here on the Gold Coast.”
Palm Beach Currumbin State High School will play Box Hill secondary college in Melbourne on May13th and host Hallam Secondary College at the Wally Fankhauser Reserve at 2pm on Wednesday May 20th.
