Dragons And SYFS Ride Into Luna Park
Thursday 4 July 2013 8:00 AM
The St George Illawarra Dragons joined students from Dragons Community partners Southern Youth & Family Services for a fun filled day at Luna Park Sydney on Tuesday.
Dragons Head Coach Steve Price, alongside Matt Cooper, Nathan Fien and Bronx Goodwin and ten representatives from SYFS experienced all the excitement occurring these school holidays at NSW’s premier amusement park.
Dragons Community supports the SYFS ‘Links to Learning’ program, which assists young people aged 12-24 within the Illawarra and South Coast regions, who have left school early or who are at risk of leaving school early.
The program provides them with a range of opportunities to remain or re-enter main stream education and training with Dragons players and staff involved in the mentoring process.
Luna Park Sydney kindly provided complimentary entry with an Unlimited Rides Pass to each student involved with SYFS on the day as well as access to the various attractions occurring at the venue this School Holiday.
“The SYFS ‘Links to Learning’ program is a great initiative which really benefits young people throughout the area unsure of where life is taking them,” said Cooper.
“It is great that they had the opportunity to experience a fun day out thanks to the generosity of Luna Park Sydney and I have no doubt that it brought smiles to the faces of all involved.”
