Wests Tigers took time out on Wednesday to visit over 6,000 kids throughout the Campbelltown region as they helped spread the #NRLWellbeing messgage.
The entire NRL squad visited over 40 different schools in the South West, educating school children on the importance of proper hydration, adequate sleep and developing and supporting a strong sense of belonging, and having plenty of fun along the way!
“I remember when I was their age and we had the NRL players come out to my school,” said new Wests Tigers recruit Jordan Rankin. "It’s something that it lives with you for a very long time, so it’s really good to get out here and see so many energised kids.
"The message we’re spreading is all about wellbeing — staying healthy with the food they eat and the water they drink — and just giving them the message that they’re never alone.
“We gave a bit of Wests Tigers trivia and played some games with them as well, and it looked like they really enjoyed it — I know I did visiting these schools for the first time.”
Wests Tigers players have been extremely active this year spreading the #NRLWellbeing message, visiting tens of thousands of students already in Coffs Harbour and the Inner West.
