The mighty Sharks are gearing up for a 'special week' as they pay tribute to Indigenous Round with a series of exciting initiatives.

Club legends Preston Campbell and David Peachey will be making appearances, adding a touch of nostalgia to the occasion.

On Thursday morning, Ardler will address the NRL squad, shedding light on the significance of the jersey adorned with stingrays that pays homage to the traditional owners of the Cronulla region.

This symbolic gesture captures the rich cultural knowledge and stories of the land.

Thanks to Deadly Choices and the Vitalis Family Medical Practice, First Nations people can receive free '715' health checks at the stadium on Friday.

It's expected that a crowd of local students and community members will gather to show their support.

The Na Joomelah program, led by the La Perouse Local Aboriginal Land Council, will be offering anti-smoking resources to promote healthier lifestyles within the community.

As the excitement builds, fans can look forward to seeing Indigenous icon Campbell showcasing his cultural heritage at the event and during the NRL team's captain's run.

Additionally, the legendary Peachey will have the honor of leading the side out onto the field on game day, adding a touch of tradition to the proceedings.
