AFL Great returns to Rostrevor

It was great to welcome Old Scholar and AFL legend Luke Darcy ('92) back to the College this week.

Melbourne-based Luke was thrilled to be back at the College, where he began in Year 3 and built many enduring friendships and memories, and enjoyed meeting First XVIII players (from left) Charles Kemp Tyson Walls, Jayden Gale and Beau Baldwin.

Thanks to our student leaders and Ms Lisa Clark for making it such an enjoyable event.
