NQ Bulk Ports blitz: Weipa

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys legend Brent Tate and NRL squad member Josh Chudleigh teamed up with community partner North Queensland Bulk Ports recently on a visit to Weipa.

The visit, part of a series of North Queensland Bulk Ports community blitzes in 2017, included school visits and an open junior rugby league training session with plenty of eager young players.

Highlights of the Weipa blitz:

  • Talking about respect, role models and education over morning tea with students at St Joseph's Parish School before hitting the field for a friendly game of footy
  • Skills and drills with JRL participants at Weipa and Napranum PCYC
  • Sharing messages on healthy foods and the importance of eating breakfast with primary and senior classes at Western Cape College

The partnership between the Cowboys and North Queensland Bulk Ports includes blitzes in all four NQBP sea port locations (Mackay, Sarina, Bowen and Weipa), with a visit to Mackay earlier this year.
