Brisbane Roar have made a stance against physical and verbal intimidation in the schoolyard after joining forces with 97.3 FM and the Courier Mail for the ‘Say No to Bullying- campaign.

Urging people to wear orange in support of the campaign, 97.3 FM and the Courier Mail hosted a special broadcast outside Kenmore State High School.

Roar stars Griffin McMaster, Reinaldo, Henrique and fan-favourite mascot Roary, joined the media outlets, promoting the campaign from the club-s marquee tent.

Roary and the players handed out free Roar poncho-s, signed autographs and posed for photographs as a strong crowd arrived to oppose bullying in school.

McMaster even made an appearance on 97.3 FM, joining breakfast crew Robin, Terry and Bob for a brief stint behind the microphone.

McMaster said he was more than willing to help abolish bullying, a problem which has been plaguing schoolyards for far too long.

“Obviously bullying was around when I was at school, and I-ve been out of school for ten years,” the 26 year-old.

“You don-t like to see it going on and it-s good to help promote the eradication of the problem.”

The ‘Say No to Bullying- campaign is a week-long joint venture between 97.3 FM and the Courier Mail and is supported by Education Queensland.
