The Collingwood Football Club in association with the AFL have chosen Lalor Primary School to represent the Club during multicultural round this year. A photo of our diverse school community will be displayed in the foyer at the Westpac Centre with an accompanied story on how the Multicultural Schools Program (MSP) has benefited Collingwood FC and Lalor Primary School. The photo will be there for the remainder of the week up until game day, Collingwood vs Carlton on Saturday the 8th of August. This is a credit to Lalor Primary School for supporting the program over many years.
Check out the Collingwood Football Club web page for an interview with Mr Barakat regarding the Multicultural round and the Lalor Primary School connection.
