QUILPIE will re­ceive a visit from rugby league roy­alty in just over one week’s time, when the leg­end him­self, Johnathan Thurston, comes to town.

JT is bring­ing his Johnathan Thurston Academy work­shops to the bush from Oc­to­ber 28-30, where the dis­trict’s stu­dents and footy play­ers will take part in the academy’s spe­cial­ist pro­grams for ed­u­ca­tion, lead­er­ship, and of course, rugby league skills.

“The JT Academy was de­vel­oped to in­spire, sup­port and to set our na­tion’s youth up to succeed across all ar­eas of their life: em­ploy­ment, ed­u­ca­tion and well­be­ing,” Mr Thurston said.

“It’s our ab­so­lute plea­sure when we get the op­por­tu­nity to ex­tend our reach to youth liv­ing in re­mote and re­gional com­mu­ni­ties.”
