Two weeks ago a number of schools participated in a "Rise For Alex" Day in support of injured Newcastle Knights player Alex McKinnon. At St Mary's Primary School in Scone, the Year 5 students dressed up in their favourite sporting gear and sang a heartfelt rendition of "Day By Day", a song dedicated to Alex McKinnon and written by Darryl Bowen, a family friend of the player.
Alex is a former student of St Mary's Primary School and the entire Catholic school community wishes him all the best in his recovery. Below is a video snippet of the Year 5 students singing.
