Coffs Coast schools were given a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the country’s best Rugby League players today.
NSW State of Origin players, Forward Tyson Frizell and Enforcer James Tamou met with students at Orara High School and talked about the importance to dream, believe and achieve.
“I’m currently studying a business course and my dream is to start my own business,” Tyson Frizell said.
The students were encouraged to think about their own dreams and shared their goals with the players, some of which included: becoming an NRL player, professional dancer, architect and lawyer.
Boyd Cordner and Mitchell Pearce visited Woolgoolga Public School and spoke to the students about building healthy lifestyles and making positive choices by eating well, playing well and staying well.
Woolgoolga Public School Teacher, Rowen McRae thanked ETC for giving the students an opportunity to meet the Blues players.
“Mitchell and Boyd did a fantastic job, they were generous with their time and gracious with the kids. We couldn’t have hoped for a better event,” Mr McRae said.
Hosted by ETC, the school visits were designed to inspire, motivate and entertain the students.
“As a not-for-profit, community orientated organisation ETC is committed to giving back to the communities in which we operate,” ETC’s Executive Manager Marketing, Sally Petersen said.
“It gives us great pleasure to be a partner in the BluesHarbour campaign and to see the excitement on the student’s faces when they met and talked to the players was priceless.”
