The St George Illawarra Dragons had the honour of meeting Australian Prime Minister, Hon. Malcolm Turnbull at the Friends of Parliament function at Parliament House, Canberra on Wednesday.
Dragons Ambassador Dan Hunt was joined by COO Michael McDonald and Community Manager Paul Everill at the function and both engaged and networked with Australian Politicians including Opposition Leader Bill Shorten and valuable high ranking members within the NRL including acting CEO John Grant.
Furthermore, the Dragons have been busy in recent weeks promoting the Club's "Best You Can Be' Diary attending schools including Albion Park Public School, Illawarra Sports High, Moruya Public School and Mogo Public School.
These visits were done by both Dylan Farrell as well as Hunt spreading valuable health and well being messages with this valuable resource.
The Dragons also recently attended the Southern Illawarra Cluster of Schools Year 6 Leaders Day held at St Pauls Catholic School Albion Park.
Both Hunt and Farrell, as well as National Youth Competition team propBlake Laurie hosted the Resilient Leaders Presentation with over 50 students discussing the importance of building resilience and becoming young leaders of the future.
These presentations were very well received and the students learnt a lot.
