Manly Warringah Sea Eagles were proud to help deliver the NRL’s Cyber Bullying program at Cromer High School on Tuesday.
NRL Game Development Officer Mel Vayro was joined by former Sea Eagles premiership winning hooker and Club Welfare Manager Matt Ballin, Club Wellbeing and Careers Manager Glenn Moore, and Club Community Manager Alisha Reber.
Matt spoke of the sacrifices he made as a young man to become a professional rugby league player. He also spoke about how young players have to be mindful of the impact social media can have on their careers.
Glenn spoke about how employers are looking into their behaviour on Facebook and Instagram accounts before deciding whether to offer young people employment, reminding them of the message that how a post or a photo can stay for life on a social media account.
As part of the visit, Alisha distributed to over 150 kids the free kids' ticket offer flyer for Manly home games courtesy of major partner URM.
"We had students from Years 9 and 10 who were all engaged and asked some great questions,’’ Mel said.
