It’s ‘Game On’ for Andrew Fifita

Sharks Have Heart, in partnership with Platinum Partner Capital Bluestone and School For Living, attended Gymea Bay Public School on Tuesday to present the book 'Game ON', a teaching resource for primary schools written by Sarah Tillott.

Game On, which has been written with a Sharks and a rugby league theme, is offered free (one hard copy A3) to all Sutherland Shire primary schools and pre-schools.

An invaluable resource containing resilience learning opportunities that enable both teachers and readers to extract resilience opportunities with confidence, Game On is empowering, fun and engaging and has demonstrated sustainable behaviour change in children.

Sharks star Andrew Fifita, joined Shontelle Stowers and Ms Tillott in reading the book in front of a room full of around 250 attentive Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 students.

Schools can register to redeem the book for free here.

Once registered, schools will have the book delivered and the teachers resource made available to download.

Teachers must be a Sharks teacher ambassador to access the book, it is free to become an ambassador and you'll can gain exclusive benefits for your school such as the free resilience resource.

The book is designed to be delivered by a teacher within a school environment and is accompanied by a teacher's resource (video and document) which is emailed to schools upon redemption.

Sharks TV was on hand to capture some of the action of the Game On presentation on Tuesday.
