Tackle the world of ‘Aussie Rules’ football with our exciting cross-curricular Footy Fever program.

Follow the 2022 Australian Rules season with our fun and challenging 48-page workbook full of activities (especially for young West Coast and Fremantle fans).

Students will use the Sports section and the Pre-Game and The Game lift-outs in The West Australian to analyse, predict and investigate our national obsession round by round in real time.

This program motivates student learning through engagement with real life content as the season unfolds. Their predictions will be confirmed or unravelled, controversies will be revealed and dissected and excitement will increase or wane with the highs and lows of the season.

The action kicks off in March.
