The St George Illawarra Dragons proudly launched their 2017 ‘Best You Can Be’ school diary on Wednesday.

It is the third consecutive year the Club has supported schools with this popular health and wellbeing resource.

Teachers and student leaders from 21 local schools attended the breakfast at the Steelers Club to support the launch of this well-received program.

Both Dragons players and our Dragons female ambassadors draw from their own lives to motivate students to be the best they can be in all aspects of life.

Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their day-to-day routines, their physical and mental wellbeing, and how they treat others in order to be the best they can be.

A welcome inclusion, after our evaluative process, in the 2017 diary, is a reading log with students aiming to make the 100 club and enjoy incentives along the way.

Dragons halfback Drew Hutchison presented the 2017 program outline with staff and representatives from the Dragons and NRL.

“It’s a really great program for stage 2 and 3 students to participate in because it helps them to think about positive choices around health, education and social issues,” said Hutchison.

The diary has recognition from the University of Wollongong as a ‘best practice’ teaching and learning resource in the key learning area of Personal Development, Health and Physical Education.
