Almanac (Inclusive) Footy Songs: Yeronga South Brisbane sign the song

About a month ago, Gold Coast Suns’ AFLW co-captain Sam Virgo helped show the footy world how her local club, the Yeronga South Brisbane Devils, have played their part in helping to include members of the deaf and hearing impaired community within the four walls of the club.

 

One of Virgo’s teammates is deaf and as a concerted effort over a number of months, the rest of the side learned the Auslan version of their song, set to the same classic tune as the Sydney Swans.

 

Follow the link HERE to find out more of the story and see/hear the song in action. What a ripper!

 

 

The International Week of the Deaf is also underway, there is more info from Deaf Australia HERE.
