NORTH­ERN sub­urbs stu­dents spent a morn­ing kick­ing foot­balls at the Dock­ers Cup girls com­pe­ti­tion in Pad­bury re­cently.

Merriwa Pri­mary School prin­ci­pal Sue Water­house said her Year 5 and 6 stu­dents joined their peers for the light­ning car­ni­val at MacDon­ald Re­serve, which was sup­ported by the WAFL clubs of Su­bi­aco, West Perth and Clare­mont.

“The mod­i­fied rules al­low for max­i­mum par­tic­i­pa­tion, en­joy­ment and skill de­vel­op­ment for girls,” she said.
