Primary school students welcomed their 'adopted' Cowboys to classrooms around Townsville yesterday as part of the Cowboys Adopt-a-School program, supported by program partner Stockland Townsville.
The adopted Cowboys visit their school once a term to encourage kids to make healthy choices, as part of the NRL's Eat Well, Play Well, Stay Well health initiative.
Cowboys players spent time with students in the playground and in the classroom of their chosen schools. Jason Taumalolo and Kyle Feldt are just two players who are role models to the young students they visit.
Jase spent time dancing and drawing with the 6L class at St Joseph's School Mundingburra, while Feldty played games outside with Years 1 and 2 students at Good Shepherd Catholic Community School.
The Cowboys make over 650 visits to North Queensland schools annually, and continue to be involved in a variety of school community activities, including curriculum-based activities, sporting clinics, presentation nights, and outdoor activities and school assemblies.
