Today is Harmony Day, a day to celebrate Australia’s cultural diversity and the Roosters have been promoting the Harmony message in schools across the Eastern Suburbs and on the Central Coast.
Led by Roosters ambassador and club legend Anthony Minichiello, the Roosters community team have delivered the Club’s award winning Roosters against Racism program to more than 1,500 primary students across nine schools.
The Roosters Against Racism program promotes the message that everyone belongs, reinforcing the importance of inclusiveness to all Australians.
Using the Sydney Roosters squad as a case study, the program addresses the importance of cultural diversity by taking a look at the Roosters squad and identifying different players backgrounds and cultures.
Anthony Minichiello also shared his own stories on cyber-racism, targeted groups, racism on the sports field and led a group discussion on strategies to deal with racism.
Roosters player Ryan Matterson also participated in the program, visiting Kesser Torah College in the morning, followed by Tregear Pubic School and Menai Public School in the afternoon via video conference. #RARharmonyday
