On Wednesday the 15th of August Rick the Rock, the official West Coast Eagles mascot and Bradd Dalzeill, a former West Coast Eagles player, visited the year one to three students from our Willagee site. Rick the Rock and Bradd had some important messages for our students about keeping active with a minimum of 30 minutes exercise each day, persevering, being a good team mate and showing resilience. Bradd summed up the message with the following message for Rick the Rock fans:
R stands for relationships (being a good friend, team mate and having a support network)
O stands for optimism (staying positive)
C stands for calm (remembering strategies to stay calm when we feel angry, frustrated or disappointed)
K stands for Kindness (remembering to show kindness and respect to others)
It was a fabulous morning enjoyed by all students and staff! A big thank you goes to Mr Acott for organising this event!
