5 Bits of Advice About: Staff Footy
- If it doesn’t exist, help set it up; it’s a great way to end the week! Definitely not just for men either; some of the best staff I’ve played against have been women.
- Sport is a great leveller; deputies go head to head against the caretaker. The following week there is endless post game analysis across all staff.
- Unleash the week’s frustrations in the game. Goals with nets are best so you can release all your pressure with *that* shot on goal… and then over-celebrate!
- Watch your tackles. It is hard for colleagues to explain to the kids that they are on crutches after you launched a two footed slider on them.
- Victory DOES matter; teachers are competitive by nature. However it’s always good to buy the losers a pint down the pub afterwards.
