One of the absolute joys associated with teaching is uncovering and learning about children’s passions and interests, and further, following the exploits of students beyond the primary school.
It doesn’t seem all that long ago when Daniel Aplin, Ben Oborn and Bryce Purser spent their Saturday mornings on the Good Shepherd Primary School oval wearing the Good Saints jumper and giving their all for the team. Fast forward to 2017 and they are still team mates, but now at North Adelaide.
On Saturday Daniel and Ben made their debut for the North Adelaide reserves while Bryce was playing his 3rd reserves game. While it is a great achievement for these 3 lads, there is quite a large number of former Good Saints doing great things at various suburban and SANFL clubs. And for the record, North Adelaide defeated Central Districts by 39 points!
If you know of any other past students whose accomplishments deserve to be highlighted, don’t hesitate to let me know.
