Harmony Day 2013

The Carlton Football Club was involved in the Carlton Neighbourhood Learning Centre’s Harmony Day celebrations today.

The event was held during Cultural Diversity Week and hosted in partnership with the Melbourne City Council and Melbourne University. A fun interactive football zone was organised for the children and Carlton giveaways were provided for those who participated.

The Club’s involvement in the event is just one of the initiatives associated with the Nick Duigan High Rise Program. The main aim of this program is to engage the students within the Carlton public housing estates and divert high risk behaviour by involving them in cost free sport after school.

Field of Dreams 2013

Australian International Academy and Sports Education Development Australia (SEDA) students competed in the 'Field of Dreams' competition at Visy Park today. The round robin style event was held as part of the Club's Multicultural Schools Program involving secondary school aged students.

SEDA is a provider of senior secondary education that focuses on hands-on industry training, while the Australian International Academy is an Islamic school in Melbourne north. The main aim of the event was to encourage cross-cultural involvement between participants and to give the students an opportunity to play in an elite stadium.

Each game was played in good spirits and focussed on the themes of the Multicultural School Program - teamwork, respect, leadership, harmony and fair play. At the end of a very even day of competition, SEDA Northcote defeated SEDA Montmorency to win the Grand Final by 12 points.
