Today our AFL boys were lucky enough to go to a Sydney Swans training session. Newington Old Boy and Swans co-captain Dane Rampe (ON 2008) took time out of the session to come and chat with the boys about his pathway to the AFL, playing at an elite level, his time at Newington, leadership and the importance of developing good habits which will not only benefit the boys on the field, but also off the field.

Seventeen Newington boys have been on the mid-north coast these holidays to learn more about Indigenous culture and Australia’s often confronting Indigenous history. A visit to the small town of Kinchela highlighted the experience of many Indigenous boys who were forcibly removed from their families: they were blindfolded, then put onto trains so they didn’t know where they were, and identified only by a number – no names were allowed. It is the home of the Kinchela Aboriginal Boys Training Home and its punishment tree, where Indigenous boys were tied up, brutally beaten, often abused, and left outside for two days. The metal loop they were tied to is still part of the tree. Learning about this awful part of our history was a sobering experience for both boys and staff.
This important visit was part of Newington’s Walking the Earth elective.
