WARRENHEIP Primary School pupils and teachers are finding ways to show their team pride - even those who have missed finals - to help fight cancer with footy colours day.
The annual dress-up day for most schools across the state is coming up in the last week of term.
Warrenheip principal Arthur Lane said his school was still navigating how to best do this via a combination of on-site and at-home learning but pupils were excited to show some team spirit.
While the likelihood of any country football remains slim, AFL finals are charging ahead - albeit all interstate - with a Melbourne-Geelong preliminary in Perth on Friday night and Ballarat's adopted club Western Bulldogs taking on Port Adelaide at Adelaide Oval on Saturday night.
