The St George Illawarra Dragons spread their wings to all corners of the state in February and March during their long-awaited annual community blitz.
From the far south coast and Eden Public School, to the Central West of New South Wales and the St George Illawarra catchment, the Dragons covered 49 schools and interacted with over 8000 students sharing important messages of respect and how playing rugby league can teach great values.
This year our players and staff participated in the NRL League Stars 'inspire, respect' outdoor sessions with students, focusing on the importance of respect to yourself and respect to others.
The visits kicked off on February 10 in the St George and Shoalhaven region engaging with students from 19 schools.
For the fourth consecutive year, the club then headed to the Central West of New South Wales for the Charity Shield which included visits to 10 schools across Mudgee, Gulgong, Dunedoo, Rylstone and Kandos.
