Footscray West PS’ principal Brendan Millar spoke about the school’s involvement and said the school has been involved in Wakakirri for about 14 years.
“We have had a commitment every 2nd year during the life of our involvement. Wakakirri has been largely developed during lunchtimes as a Club.”
For the first time at the school, this year Wakakirri was developed as part of the curriculum program.
