Workpower Nursery grows sporting superstars!

The Workpower Nursery is growing sporting superstars with worker Luke Fitzpatrick having been selected in the Integrated Football State Team.

Luke has only been playing football for two years, kicking goals as a forward pocket at Coolbinia Amateur Football Club.

“This year I was very honoured to get asked to play in an integrated state team,” said Luke.

Now that he is a state-level footballer Luke has been rubbing shoulders with AFL superstars.

“A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to train with Michael Walters from the Fremantle Dockers.

“He was very good with helping us 36 people with disabilities.

“His knowledge of football is awesome,” said Luke.

As well as training with AFL players, some credit for Luke’s drastic improvement over a relatively short time should go to Support Supervisor Pradeep Neupane for facilitating footy practice.

“Every week, mostly Fridays, we try to get down to the oval and play some footy,” said Pradeep.

“We’re very proud of Luke.”

Luke isn’t the only budding sports superstar who can be found at our Noranda Nursery, his colleague Blake has recently won three medals in swimming at the State Championships.
