The Sharks partnered up with the Australian Defence Force (ADF) last week in hosting a careers information day for local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
Held at PointsBet Stadium, the Sharks and the ADF came together to offer careers advice while also giving the students from the NRL’s School to Work program a training experience where they had the opportunity to watch the Sharks NRL squad go through their paces.
In addition to watching the NRL team in action, the youngsters toured the stadium including the dressing rooms and gym, before joining the Sharks players at lunch.
The students then heard from ADF staff about their experiences and information as to the defence force careers available.
Over 30 students attended, hearing directly from those who have experienced the ADF and the amazing opportunities on offer in a wide range of occupations.
The Sharks are proud to partner with the ADF and also the NRL’s School to Work program, with this initiative aligning with the Sharks Have Heart pillar of Diversity and the Club’s commitment to its current Reconciliation Action Plan.
