The Sharks will continue their efforts to help eradicate bullying with the return of the Make Bullying History program in 2018.
Brett Murray, founder of Make Bullying History Foundation and presenter of the Sharks Make Bullying History Initiative (MBHI), will again be spreading the important messages in delivering this important program to schools.
In presenting this special program in both the Sutherland Shire and beyond, both Murray and the Sharks are taking responsibility to raise awareness and offer positive solutions in a bid to eradicate bullying in schools and in the general community.
The MBHI is one of the Sharks signature community partners, with the Sharks working in partnership with Murray in delivering what can be a life-changing event into schools.
The program encourages schools and principals to work together on this issue in forming a united front in the fight against bullying.
As for the Sharks and their involvement, they realise that bullying is long term, on-going violence, threats of violence and antagonization, with positive male role models the main influencer of a person’s self-esteem and self-worth.
The Sharks, along with Murray, are aiming to be those positive role models.
Murray will again visit local primary and high schools in the Sutherland Shire, after recently returning from a trip to the Riverina area, where his presentation was extremely well received at the Wagga Wagga Christian College.
“Just wanted to say a big thank you from the College for your excellent presentation today,” said a testimonial and note of appreciation from the school. “Thank you for making it positive, impacting and memorable.
“You reinforced many things the College has been talking about over the last 12 months in regards to phone addiction, what bullying is and responding not reacting.
“Please pass on our deepest gratitude to the Cronulla Sharks for their support and for giving us the opportunity to hear this presentation.”
