Students from Bulahdelah Central School had the opportunity to attend the Indigenous Tennis Come and Try Day which was run by the Evonne Goolagong Foundation.
The Dream, Believe, Learn, Achieve initiative promotes and helps provide better health and education for young Indigenous Australians.
The day began with Evonne telling the children about her journey with tennis. She started playing by hitting a ball against any surface she could with a wooden paddle her father made for her from an old apple crate.
The main message of the day was encouraging students to stay at school, discover the things they are passionate about and then focus their energy on achieving those dreams.
The students had a fantastic day interacting with top coaches and meeting indigenous students from other schools.
