Stephen Michael

A West Australian Football Legend

Stephen Michael is widely considered to be one of the greatest ever players from Western Australia and arguably the greatest in the history of the South Fremantle Football Club.

Throughout his life, Stephen has demonstrated great values and integrity and the perfect role model to have a foundation honouring his name.

A proud Aboriginal man, Stephen was born in Wagin, WA and grew up in the southern Wheatbelt town of Kojonup before making his way to the South Fremantle Football Club where he became a legend.

Happy Birthday to one of our amazing Midwest staff members, Ryan!
Ryan’s enthusiasm for working with youth has been a key driver in bringing success to the Midwest region in such a short space of time. Ryan’s ability to connect with young people, along with forming great relationships with key stakeholders in the region, is what makes him such a vital member of the Midwest Team.
His kind, caring and hard-working attitude means he’s not only a joy to work with, but a hit with students across the schools and community he engages with.

Connecting Students Everywhere 🎧

As the school term comes to a close, we look back on some fun moments across each of our regional schools participating in SMF Connect. Our students learned a lot and engaged well, many great moments were had, and special memories were made despite distance barriers. We look forward to what Term 3 brings!
Happy Birthday to Jay, our captain of the Midwest. 

Jay’s leadership is what makes our work in the Midwest region so strong. His kind, caring, and enthusiastic attitude means he’s not only a joy to work with, but a hit with the students and the stakeholders he engages across the schools and community. 

As one of our newer staff members, Jay quickly found his feet in the likes of Mullewa, Morawa, and Northampton, and has already left a mark in each through the fantastic work he has done. 

Enjoy your day, Jay!
