Heppell drops in

Keen fans: back, from left, Tarwin Valley students Grace and Irene, and front, Bodhi, Zara and Dayne enjoyed the visit from the local Essendon young gun, Dyson Heppell.

TARWIN Valley Primary School’s uniform was more of a red and black than the usual green on Friday, as local AFL star Dyson Heppell came to visit.
It was couch time with last year’s NAB Rising Star as he faced the tough questions from the students.
Most questions were about Heppell’s football career and life as an AFL footballer.
The Essendon backman also faced up for the Tarwin 30 – 30 seconds of random questions including what was his favourite children’s movie.
Photos, autographs and a couple of high-fives followed the couch time interview.
Heppell missed his first game over the weekend since debuting for the Bombers last year, but should be back in the side for the match with Melbourne on Saturday.
