This year Critical Agendas conducted our inaugural AFL tipping competition with teachers from over 40 schools participating. In the end there could only be one winner with Shane Hart (Catholic Regional College) taking out the winning prize of $500.00.
His final tally of 133 included two perfect rounds (scoring 9/9).
At one stage our eventual winner was placed 27th on the leaderboard nevertheless he always proved loyal to his side Richmond in what was a memorable year for the Tiger faithful.
Our runner up was Sue Freemantle from the Knox School who finished with a score of 131 ahead of Kingsley Dalgleish (Vice Principal of St Brigid's College, Horsham) on 130. The pair received prizes of $300.00 and $200.00 respectively.
A total of nine schools featured in our top ten with two Corryong College staff members Bronwyn McNamara-Moyle (=7th) and Thomas McKimmie (=9th) finishing with 125+.
Message from Shane Hart: Thanks to the Critical Agendas team for putting on a fantastic Footy Tipping Competition for 2017. Thanks to all my fellow competitors for a fun season of tipping in what was already an amazing 2017 AFL season that went right down to the last game. Although it’s not over yet as I’ll be cheering my mighty Tiges on hoping they can play a few more games this September! Make sure you sign up next year for the 2018 Tipping competition and also get along to some of Critical Agendas fantastic Professional Development sessions.
Message from Sue Freemantle: What a great competition for teachers who love their footy and enjoy matching wits with their colleagues. It's been great fun in 2017 and I'm already looking forward to participating again in 2018. Go Cats!
Message from Kingsley Dalgleish: Thanks to Critical Agendas for coordinating the AFL Tipping Competition in 2017. It was certainly an exciting comp to be a part of with the final results not being clear until the final round of the season. I will be entering again in 2018 and look forward to once again pitting my tipping talents against those from other schools as well. Very keen for both my tips, and the Power, doing a little better next season!
