The Raiders conduct a coaching clinic for St Thomas More Primary School

Today, the Canberra Raiders went out to St Thomas More Primary School, Campbell to conduct a coaching clinic as part of Boundless Canberras Boundless Enthusiasm Competition.


Raiders players Jack Wighton and Lagi Setu along with NRL Development Officer Ash Barnes taught the students at St Thomas More Primary the basics of rugby league as well as the importance of a healthy lifestyle.


Each student and staff member was also provided with a Raiders fandanna, much to their delight.


The players were overjoyed to provide such a positive impact on the students.


It was great to come out to St Thomas More Primary School today and teach the kids about rugby league and how to lead a healthy lifestyle, Wighton said.


I love heading out to schools in the community and trying to make a positive difference with the kids. Its a privilege to play in the NRL because a lot of kids look up to you so its important to try and set the right example for them and be very approachable.


It was awesome to see so many smiling faces today. Im glad they had fun because Lagi, Ash and I had a ball too.


Hopefully we get to see them all again when the Raiders play at Canberra Stadium.


As mentioned previously, the coaching clinic was coordinated by Boundless Canberras Boundless Enthusiasm Competition which the Raiders have donated two coaching clinics for as prizes.


Boundless Canberra is the name given to The National Childrens Playground Project, a project to build an all-abilities playground in the national capital precinct.


Boundless Canberra aims to be Australia's premier playground in its location, design and size - in order to match the significance of the Centenary of Canberra.

The project is a gift to Canberra and the Nations children. A gift from the public servants of Canberra as a demonstration of the spirit of service that underpins the ACT and Australian Public Service ethos, and a gift from the private sector who have helped build Canberra over the past 100 years.


Boundless Canberra aims to leave a lasting legacy to be enjoyed by children of all abilities well into the next century. As an all-abilities playground it will foster inclusion and respect for our fellow Australians, reinforce how we see ourselves and how we want the rest of Australia to see us when they visit their national capital.


To support Boundless and help demonstrate that Canberra really is the best Australian city in which to bring up children head to http://www.boundlesscanberra.org.au/ to get involved.
