Newsletter Round 10
Some weeks it’s not about what happens on the football oval or netball courts but about what off them.
Shanya and Luke Beattie initiated a small video that was posted on the KFNC Face Book and Instagram pages, and it went viral.
The video was a small presentation by Luke, the Senior Coach and Senior Players, Josh Govan (Captain), Harrison Huntly, Jake Safstrom and Billy Mahoney. It was a response to the outcry following the rape and murder of Eurydice Dixon in Melbourne.
In the Video the guys voiced their own personal opposition to violence against women and reinforced the KFNC’s position, to treat girls and women with the same respect everybody deserves.
The Video was picked up by WINTV, ABC Statewide Drive and the Midland Express.
I am incredibly proud of the men involved in the Club who have taken this stand and commend them for their efforts.
The KFNC has recently been involved in the Rural Challenge for Gender Equality and we take very seriously the safety and well-being of all members and participants at the Club.
