Josh Dugan took time out earlier this week to join Sharks Make Bullying History founder Brett Murray at Menai Primary School in the Sutherland Shire, with the pair presenting the important anti-bullying messages.
With today the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence, Tuesday’s visit was extremely timely as the pair reinforced their support for zero tolerance towards bullying.
Dugan was candid and open in sharing some of his experiences with the Year 4-5 and 6 students, before answering a range of questions as to his likes, dislikes, football preparation and his healthy eating habits.
As for Murray, in presenting his thought provoking messages, he again engaged with the youngsters in an entertaining manner, offering them education as to the causes and effects of bullying, while providing advice as to how best to handle situations that may arise.
Murray’s presentations also focus on inspiring higher self-esteem, for both those being bullied and the perpetrators of bullying, while encouraging students to set lofty goals and to dream big.
The visit and presentation was one of many Murray and the Sharks Make Bullying History Initiative have made and will continue to make at both local and out of area primary and high schools.
