Last Monday saw the TDRU Development team head out to Charters Towers to assist the Charters Towers Bulls with the running of rugby sessions for the Isolated Children’s Parents’ Association – Fit for Rural Futures Sports Camp. The ICPA is a voluntary, non-profit, apolitical parent body dedicated to ensuring that all rural and remote students have equity of access to a continuing and appropriate education. For students, this is a great way to give new sports a go, with some children getting their first taste for rugby union.
Kids come from all of Queensland from places such as Hughenden, Mt Isa, Longreach, Julia Creek, Winton for a week and are exposed to all different sports including rugby union. A big thanks to Lun Knuth and Brett Murray from the Charters Towers Bulls who assisted on Monday before taking full control of the program for the remainder of the week.
