From Franklin Primary School


The Kids Tennis Foundation program has been amazing. The whole school community is really excited about being involved with Kids Tennis Foundation and the Ken Rosewall Regional Project. Staff and students really enjoy the activities and the confidence gained by the students is evident.

The skills they are learning from Coach, Bernadette Franklin, are great and I think they already feel they could play for Australia!

Having Ken himself visit the school recently was amazing. He spoke to the assembly.  The parents and grandparents who attended were keen to catch up with him afterwards for a chat. In his talk he spoke about the way his love of tennis had enabled him to travel the world and have such amazing experiences. The students and staff are excited about the coming weeks of lessons. Our school is well equipped with Hot Shot equipment and we will continue to build on these skills. Carmel Stuckey, Principal
