With all Georgia school students studying about Australia in Grade 6 interest around Australia Day is always high. So Atlanta Kookaburras President Wayne Kraska was invited to present all he knew about his homeland and of course 'footy' to 250 6th graders at White County Middle School, 75 miles north of Atlanta. Not surprisingly hot topics of the day were Kangaroos, Snakes and of course Aussie Rules Football.
Questions were fielded ranging from what sort of Government do you have, to what is Australia's deadliest animal? A demonstration of a drop punt skimming over the top of the students heads drew a few 'ooohs are arrhs" but so did the Aussie flag, didgeridoo, boomerang and that very unusual cricket bat!!
