Squadron Community Blitz a success in Riverina

The Dragons once again partnered proudly with Squadron Energy to bring the 2024 Community Blitz to 11 local schools and two junior league clubs in the Riverina region.

Dragons stars Corey Allan and Tara McGrath-West were joined by Dragons Community Team on the three-day trip to the state's southwest.

School assemblies focused on the key messages of being the best you can be, looking after the environment, and how being environmentally friendly can lead to positive health benefits such as riding a bike instead of driving or packing package-free snacks in your lunch box.

Along with the school sessions, visits were conducted at both the Tumut Blues and the Gundagai Adelong Tigers junior rugby league clubs.
