Morwell, Victoria

Thanks to funding from CQS, The Yulgilbar Foundation (Myer) and International Club Philanthropy, KTF programs are being conducted in many primary schools in regional and remote areas of Australia as part of the Ken Rosewall Regional Project. Kids Tennis Foundation is truly indebted to these three wonderful sponsors. As a result, the children in schools in these regional areas have been given an opportunity that would not have been possible without their support.  

One such school is the “new” Morwell Central Primary School. KTF coach of 25 years, Andrew Peavey, has been conducting the Kids Tennis Foundation program and students have been working on improving their skills as well as having lots of fun. Pictured here is Andrew with the Morwell Central P.S School Captain and Vice Captains.  

Comments from the teachers below indicate that the children are loving their time with coach, Andrew…..

Andrew (Grade 6 teacher)

Andrew is always happy and makes jokes with us. We all have funny names. He doesn't take things too seriously. He is really interactive. He listens to students and what they want to learn and gives the kids choices in games

Kezia (Grade 1/2 teacher)

All students are engaged, have a lot of fun and Andrew caters for all different levels.

Carolyne (Grade 1/2 teacher)

The sessions keep every child active and involved at all times. They are learning great skills. Sessions are pitched at the right skill and grade level.

Andrew has a positive, humorous manner with the students and they love going to tennis lessons.

He is always well organised, equipment ready to use and well planned.

The only improvement would be to give us MORE lessons.
