Damo Makes His Mark


Written by the Katherine 7 - Students from Katherine High School alongside ILF Ambassador David Lawrence

This story is about Damo, a kid who dreams about playing for the mighty Big River Hawks. But there’s one thing holding him back… he’s absolutely hopeless at footy! That all changes when a giant grey kangaroo scratches him under the eye and knocks him out. Damo wakes up to discover he can jump up really high in the air (like a kangaroo!) to take ‘speckys’, and kick gigantic torpedo punts straight through the goals. He is stoked, but soon discovers that being the most talented player, doesn’t always make you the best player.
