Sharks star Jason Bukuya and author Dr Sarah Tillott kicked off the first of three visits to local libraries last night by reading and promoting the rugby league-themed children’s book “Game On” in a continuation of Sharks Have Heart’s ongoing support and encouragement of Sutherland Shire Libraries.
Dr Tillott will be reading the book at the three visits, with father of three Bukuya joining in at Menai, as the program aims to empower, engage and educate children in important social situations including how to overcome conflict, anxiety and anger management issues.
Over the next two weeks Dr Tillott will also read Game On at the Engadine and Sutherland libraries.
Sharks Have Heart have supported local libraries over the last few years, with Wade Graham a popular visitor and book reader at various Shire venues last year.
Game On aligns with Sharks Have Heart in engaging and helping to build resilience within the youth of the Sutherland Shire, while encouraging children to read more books.
What is the Game On about?
