We will kickoff our 2018 program at 9am on the Saturday 21st April at JK Grant Reserve on Bluegum Drive.  We play on the main Cricket oval. 

We work closely with the Altona Vikings and offer a range of opportunities for you to expand your footy skills and childhood wishes.  This includes a transition program from Auskick to the Altona Vikings for kids who are interested in club footy.

We’ll have visit from the Vikings, Williamstown Football Club and also representatives from the Western Bulldogs Mens and Womens teams during the season.  We will also look to give as many age-qualified kids the opportunity to play a half time game, be it with our local club the Vikings, at the VFL or at the AFL.

School Crossing Supervisor of the Year Awards

Every two years, School Crossings Victoria, holds an awards night to honour the dedication and hard work put into the Community by School Crossing Supervisors from all over the state. It is that time again where we ask all schools to promote the award and ask the school community to nominate the supervisor they feel is worthy of being recognised, and may even be judged Victoria’s School Crossing Supervisor of the Year. What an honour that title will be for one of our dedicated supervisors.

The 2015/2016 award night was held in Preston in 2016 with the winner being Robyn Sabljak from Murrindindi Shire Council. The night itself, was wonderful, 250 attended with over 700 nominations received, and there was a lot of pride in the room.

We have attached the nomination and eligibility form. Nominations close on May 25, 2018.
