Souths Cares Central Coast Wrap Up

The Souths Cares team spent last week on the Central Coast delivering the Rabbitohs Wellbeing Program and Football Clinics to primary school students in the lead up to the Rabbitohs Round Eight NRL game at Central Coast Stadium.

Throughout the Regional Health Promotion Tour, the Souths Cares team were accompanied by students from the Rabbitohs SEDA College Program who did an exceptional job co-delivering Football Clinics and teaching students the fundamental skills of Rugby League.

The Tour kicked off on Wednesday with the team delivering Healthy Relationships Workshops, Mental Health & Wellbeing Workshops and Football Clinics to over 1,000 students at St. John the Baptist Primary School in the morning followed by Ettalong Public School in the afternoon.

Crystal Overton, Souths Cares Administration and Program Support Officer facilitated the Healthy Relationships Workshops and stated the students engaged well with the content.  

“The students at St. John the Baptist Primary School and Ettalong Public School were fantastic today and eager to learn about healthy relationships which are built upon respect, teamwork and inclusion’, Crystal said.

On Thursday the team engaged over 800 students from three schools including Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School, Kariong Public School and Gosford East Public School. A range of workshops were delivered including eSafety, Gratitude, Healthy Relationships and Mental Health & Wellbeing which were accompanied by Football Clinics at each school.

Liz Bain is a Teacher at Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School and explained the workshops aligned closely with the teachings and values of the school.

“The Mental Health & Wellbeing and Healthy Relationships components of the presentations fully complemented what we try to instil in our children every day. Teachers were so grateful to have positive mentors emphasize what they are also teaching in the classroom and the young coaches from SEDA College were a credit to their school”, Liz said.

On Friday, the Souths Cares team visited the Glen Rehab for Men, where some of the participants shared their candid and inspiring stories of overcoming drug and alcohol addiction. The team then headed to the brand-new Glen Rehab for Women for a tour of the facility which will officially open next week with its first intake of female residents.

Souths Cares and the Rabbitohs were honoured to host some of the Glen Boys at the Rabbitohs NRL game on Friday night, with the group showcasing a special dance performance that included a Didgeridoo player prior to kick off.

The Rabbitohs Wellbeing Program is proudly supported by the Ian and Shirley Norman Foundation.
