On Tuesday, the students of Tallong Public School were treated to a visit from two stars of rugby league: Benji Marshall and Luke Brooks.
Both men play for the Wests Tigers in the NRL, and visited the school to present a topic talk on respect.
Marshall and Brooks both discussed what respect meant to them and how they showed it, before some video clips were shown of other Tigers players discussing the same theme.
This was followed by an interactive period where the students were asked to discuss how they showed respect, and engaged in some fun activities with the players where they had to show respect and demonstrate collaboration and communication.
Both players thoroughly enjoyed their visit, and Brooks said it was "great to come and spend time in a small rural school."
After all the activities and presentations came what the school described as the highlight of the afternoon, when the students were given the opportunity to ask Marshall and Brooks questions.
Robert, a Year Six student, asked Marshall what his career highlight was.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Marshall replied that it was the 2005 NRL Grand Final, in which the Tigers defeated the North Queensland Cowboys 30-16.
This match was also famous for Marshall's flick-pass behind his back to Pat Richards, who went on to score a try and put the Tigers up 12-6 just before half time.
After the questions concluded, the players signed memorabilia for the kids, some of which they provided and some of which the children had brought from home.
TPS principal, Scott Osborne was thrilled with the presentation from Marshall and Brooks.
"The NRL and the Wests Tigers delivered a great message to all students and it matches the expectations at Tallong Public School," Osborne said.
"It was nice to hear from Benji about how the students of Tallong interacted positively throughout the presentation and had their own opinions about respect, which is a credit to the school, staff and the community."
This is the second visit from high-profile athletes to TPS of late. In December last year, Glenn Turner and Ellen Ryan both visited the school to officially open the new sporting houses named in their honour.
