Their students are always well behaved and respectful towards our players and we are honoured that our relationship has grown from it first beginnings at the Homeless World Cup in Melbourne in 2008 to now become an annual and sometimes bi annual event. Ivanhoe Grammar has been one of our biggest donors over the years and for that we will always be grateful.
In June of this year they came again to visit and Ivanhoe Grammar staff member Chris Norwood said the following
"Ivanhoe grammar School runs a service project to Cambodia each year in June and one of the highlights is to meet up with the Happy Football Cambodia players. This year we had 16 students, 8 boys and 8 girls and we participated in a series of 10 minute rotations. Straight off the plane from the day before and having stumbled out of bed at 6.00am, Ivanhoe were characteristically trounced but the games were played with good spirit and humour"
