Nic’s tolerance tips
MULTICULTURAL ROUND TO KICK OFF
AUSTRALIA Post staff at the Perth Mail Centre received some words of advice when Australia Post and AFL Multicultural Ambassador Nic Naitanui dropped in for a visit.
The ruckman was on hand to spread the word about this year’s AFL Multicultural Round.
The West Coast Eagles player met with staff at the Perth Mail Centre to give them some professional athletic tips for ‘warming up’ before a shift.
“Australian Football has the extraordinary power to bring people together regardless of background,” Naitanui said.
“It is always fantastic to see so many people turn out to matches during the Toyota AFL Multicultural Round to join in the cultural celebration.”
Australia Post managing director and CEO Ahmed Fahour said Australia Post’s ongoing commitment to celebrating cultural diversity was something they shared with the AFL.
Mr Fahour said he hoped Multicultural Round exposed new fans and communities to AFL, particularly those who have never experienced the thrill of a live match.
“Australia Post employs 37,000 people from 137 nations and almost a quarter of our employees are from non-English

“Sport, and in particular AFL, has the power to connect diverse communities and people from different cultural backgrounds through a shared passion.”
Australia Post is the official community inclusion partner of the AFL and delivers a number of grassroots community activities under the Australia Post Our Neighbourhood community program.
