AFL smarties at Glen Forrest Primary scored a set of jumpers emblazed with their design for their school in a state-wide competition.

Year 6 students calculated a one in six chance of winning a prize but did not expect Angie Regan to take first prize and her twin sister Monica coming a close second.

The WA Football Commission challenged students to calculate the probability of winning and write a convincing reason why their design should win. The prize was a full set of footy jumpers for the school in the winning design.

Physical education teacher Mark Bosworth said the new jumpers would be worn at next year’s inter-school lightening carnival.

“I hope the colours of the local flora, purple for the Hovea and yellow for wattle, will help our students make a clean sweep against the other local schools again,” he said.

Continuing the winning streak, four students took part in the state finals of the 2017 Freo Footy Skills Competition.

Bryden Duffy and Jordan Ferraro raised their game to take the runners-up spot in the Year 6 state final, with Year 4 players Alby Denys and Chad Wilson putting up a fine performance to take a bronze award.
