A great weekend of football down at the Den last weekend with both Captial games being played in great spirit - a big thanks to the teams and supporters from North Brisbane.
Last weekend was an opportunity for our club wear our Indigenous shirts as part of the Indigenous round and to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and in particular the Mount Gravatt 'kaggur-mabul' or 'caggara-mahbill', meaning 'place of echidna' or 'echidna rests here'.

A massive thankyou to the team at Bunnings Hardware and everyone at the club who volunteered their time and helped out at the Bunnings BBQ last weekend which raised much needed funds for the club.
A special thankyou to John Garside from PGT (Professional Goalkeeper Tuition) who donated a signed Valencia Team Jersey who play in the Spanish La Liga competition to be raffled off - you can purchase a ticket this weekend during our junior matches.
Junior football kicks off again this weekend so get down to the club and support our young Socceroos and Matildas!

In support of NAIDOC week (7th - 14th July) the club will be wearing an Indigenous playing shirt which has been designed specifically for our club.
The story behind the design;
Mt Gravatt (Kaggur Madul – ‘Echidna Mountain’) is situated on the land of the Yugarabul, Yuggera, Jagera and Turrbal peoples and is known for its echidna quills, used in sewing cloaks.
It is a massive resource zone for Ironbark and Blue gum used to make canoes.
Mt Gravatt/ Nathan has marked ceremonial/ dance/ burial sites for the indigenous community.
By using some of the Blue Gum and Hunting or Dance sites as inspiration, the shirt design incorporates indigenous images of Echidna foot prints diagonally across the shirt with a large echidna on the front of the shirt.
The shirt is available for purchase via our new online Merchandise Store for $30.00 and we would love to see everyone wearing one.
Orders are being taken now. Get yours here!

Work to returf and replace the sprinkler system on the main field will commence in September which is all part of our 5 year strategic plan for the club.
The committee is continuing to work hard to make further improvements to our facilities and there is more exciting news to come. Stay tuned....

Grassroots Football at its best!
Whyplan | 12:00am, Tuesday 9 April 2019
Sponsor Shoutout! Most of us would have insurance covers inside of superannuation by default, but does this best cover your specific needs. Whyplan is now offering obligation-free initial consultation to the Clairvaux FC community. Have a chat with our CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® on how to structure a policy for your family.
Have you ever considered :
- What would happen to my spouse and family in the event of a mishap?
- What kind of insurances are available?
- Is your insurance cover sufficient?
- Can I be over insured?
- What amount of cover is right for my family?
- With cover inside superannuation, is it easy to claim?
- With cover inside superannuation, does my insurance premium increase every year as I age?
- What are the tax implications during a claim? Will I pay tax on the payout?
- Can I have an insurance policy tailored to my own family needs? Can this be paid by superannuation or myself?
