Shannon Hurn, captain of the West Coast Eagles, attended the School Assembly this morning to present North Perth Primary School with the award which recognises the school that collects the highest volume of food for the Food Bank Appeal. Shannon spoke to students about the importance of healthy eating and what a huge part that plays in his life as an AFL footballer. He also recognised the massive effort by North Perth Primary School in collecting so much food for such a worthy cause.

Overall we collected nearly 500kg of tinned food. A special mention goes to the students and families in Room 10 who were the class that collected the greatest volume of food.
