North Queensland Toyota Cowboys’ legend and community ambassador Matthew Bowen and six of the club’s under-20s players recently visited St Patrick’s College in Townsville to spread the healthy lifestyle messages of the Cowboys TryTime! program. 

The interactive workshop involving 130 students focused on healthy eating and making healthy choices for a balanced lifestyle.

While the message was a serious one, students were also delighted with their TryTime! bucket hats and the opportunity to interact with the players after the workshop.

Hayley Steyn, national business development manager for the Spotless Group (including Alliance Catering), attended the event and was happy to see the students enjoying themselves.

Alliance Catering is pleased to sponsor the TryTime! sessions for St Patrick’s College as part of their commitment to educating on health and wellbeing as part of their service delivery model.

TryTime! encourages positive choices for life by engaging junior secondary school students to address social and personal development issues directly impacting on their learning and long-term life outcomes. 

Delivery of the program is through a series of high-energy workshops addressing substance abuse, healthy lifestyles, self-esteem and body image, goal setting and personal values.

TryTime! has delivered workshops to over 25,000 students in 115 secondary schools over four years.
