Bulldogs Spread the ‘Tackle Bullying’ Message
Monday 11 February 2013 5:36 PM
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have this afternoon visited 34 schools within the local area delivering the NRL’s ‘Tackle Bullying’ campaign.
The NRL squad headed out at 12.30pm alongside NRL Development Officers and into the schools where they showed the newest video from the NRL and discussed the ways in which you can combat any form of bullying.
Captain Michael Ennis knows the importance of being in a happy environment and was more than happy to head out and deliver the message.
"It's good to come out and visit the local schools and spread the message about anti-bullying,” Ennis said. "The NRL have put together a great program this year with a video package and everything so we ran through that with the kids and then interacted and spoke to them about how it plays a part in their day to day life.
“We want kids to be stronger in and around their groups and both stand up for themselves if they are getting bullied and also learn to not bully other kids as well."
Today formed part of both the NRL and Bulldogs annual Community Carnival that has seen players visit school students both locally and abroad with James Graham, Josh Jackson, Moses Mbye and Corey Payne spending last week in Queensland visiting schools and conducting junior league clinics in the Rockhampton region.
Now in its 12th year the NRL’s Community Carnival includes more than 350 players from each NRL Club, visiting more than 120,000 students over four weeks of activity.
