Best Game Day Tactics
St. bridget's greythorn
And the winner is ……..St. Bridget’s Catholic Primary School! The students enjoyed the school decorations, props, and wearing their favourite footy colours alongside some face paint and hair colouring! The students also learnt about supporting others and we cheer on the great effort.
Team Spirit Award

Albury Wodonga Community College wins the Team Spirit Award this year for gathering staff at community colleges across VIC, NSW, WA, SA & TAS to take part. A lot of fun was had, and we hope to see them all supporting Footy Colours Day 2022!
For bringing together footballers, their local school Port Curtis Road State School, Blackwoods and RemServ to join in their Footy Colours Day festivities, this year’s Leadership Award goes to Hastings Deering Rockhampton. Everyone played games together and had a BBQ under marquees. We hope to see you take the lead again next year!
Best on Ground
Sacred heart ps yarrawonga
Our Best on Ground award goes to Sacred Heart Primary School Yarrawonga for their incredible display of colour! Staff and students started the day with fun activities, followed by a sausage sizzle and cupcake feast and topped it all off with a colour dash! They even got the local fire brigade involved!
Try of the Year
Direct your congratulations for Try of the Year towards Arcadia College. They may look like they take their rugby seriously in this pic, but they also care about inclusivity and education, and we thank them all for supporting Footy Colours Day 2021.
Another strong year on the field sees InEight win the Chairman’s Award for 2021! The past two years have seen InEight running their Footy Colours Day virtually due to local restrictions. Though the team still managed to run a successful awareness campaign in the fortnight prior to their event culminating in a virtual get together with sports-based trivia and a raffle!
The team at Bend-tech Group win this year’s Coach's Award. They started the day perfectly with a BBQ breakfast provided by the culture team! Everyone took part by wearing a diverse range of footy colours, enjoying games of basketball and dodgeball and with a few good chats the event resulted in a very happy team on Friday! Great to have your support – The Coach
Mark of the Year
Taking the award for Mark of the Year is Glenvill Homes. The Glenvill Team had an incredible turnout with the entire company excited to support Footy Colours Day and win some prizes along the way. We look forward to seeing you all next year …flying up up!
Most Adaptive Game Play
christ church grammar school
The Most Adaptive Game Play award goes to Christ Church Grammar. COVID-19 had many of us separated physically but they enjoyed a virtual Footy Colours Day. Starting the day with an online “warm up” video starring the PE Teachers and then making good use of the Footy Colours Day resources. The CCGS team also invented many other games, and we may just have to request the ideas for the Footy Colours Day Tips & Tools centre!
Team of the Year Award
icon cancer centre
We are super proud to announce the winner of Team of the Year as Icon Cancer Centre Windsor Gardens. The team held an extraordinary fun-filled day for staff and patients in both medical and radiation oncology.
Staff member Rebecca cut her hair in support of patients who lose their hair to cancer treatments and all money raised went to Footy Colours Day. The incredible gesture was also captured and aired on Channel 7! Thank you, Team of the Year 2021.
Rookie of the year
We welcome to the Footy Colours Day team BellParker@homes. They tell us they loved their day! This all women side went all out to involve their community. Supplying the food for a BBQ and games and competitions galore. A great way to meet the neighbours and a fantastic effort to support kids with cancer. Welcome to the Footy Colours Day Team!
