Staying Healthy at Millbrook- Yr 1 & 2 football

Millbrook Year 1 and 2 children represented the school in a football tournament against our LACT schools on Friday 23rd November.  The team were superb and won the final!  Every squad member played a game and were instrumental in the success of the team.  Lets hope they continue their love of the sport outside of school as well!
