Greg and Beau Bring Smiles to Pagewood Public School

Souths Cares visited years 5 and 6 at Pagewood Public School in the lead up to the round two clash with the Sharks, as an extension of our Healthy and Active Lifestyle Program.


The lesson focused on the fundamentals of living a Healthy Lifestyle; and the importance of good nutrition, exercise and positive social skills.


Greg Inglis and Beau Champion spoke to the students about their own lifestyles and experiences growing up and their commitment to living a healthy lifestyle in order to achieve their dreams as elite athletes.


The lesson obviously hit the mark with the students and staff, with Souths Cares receiving this message of thanks from School Principal Marella Hogan.


Dear Shannon,


Thanks for brightening our day with your visit. We all appreciate the effort you went to to get Greg and Beau too. As a Souths supporter since 1968, who has never met any player, it was a highlight to start at the absolute top of the tree.


The kids have been buzzing all day, sporting their new caps and drink bottles.


As I said this morning, I am so taken with the professionalism of the Rabbitos brand these days. The Backyard League and Healthy Lifestyle programs are very well organised with motivating resources and appropriate content which links to the curriculum really well. The calibre of the people delivering the programs is most impressive. They engage with our kids in a very positive manner.


We were impressed at how well both Beau and Greg spoke and how they interacted with the kids. Our school secretary commented on how polite they were when they arrived and waited while she dealt with a little girl's scratched knee. I think they won a few hearts today!





Thanks for all the goodies - the caps, bottles and tickets. There will be a little Pagewood cheer squad behind the posts on Monday night, hoping for another Bunnies victory, setting them well on track for the premiership. Please come back and visit us again with Greg and Beau and the Premiership Trophy.


Marella Hogan, Principal, Pagewood PS.
