State of Origin - Wear your Colours (SRC Gold Coin Donation)

State of Origin Wednesday 5 June
The rugby league State of Origin series each year leads to a heightened level of excitement that is difficult to avoid. The media coverage is welcome fodder for those who love the game and perhaps an annoyance or distraction for those who do not. For the last few years at Gilston we have embraced the atmosphere created by encouraging students to wear their team’s colours and bring in a Gold Coin Donation for the Student Representative Council (SRC).
On 5 June students will be able to show their allegiance to their team by wearing either a coloured T-Shirt, ribbons in their hair, a coloured head band. Their team need not be from rugby league, it need only be a team that the child follows or in which they compete e.g. the chess team in which they compete, the local netball club, a soccer team from overseas or readers club. By participating the students learn about being able to support a team and respect that someone else can support another. The sportsmanship created will bode well for their future.
