I’ve once again come across the story that made me put my whole interest in the Sea Eagles team. In fact I attended the program and had seen the magic of it. This visit was made last 8 years but it was an inspirational act that captivated my heart and the fan inside me. So let me share this with you. (Note: This story is also shared in the covenant school’s website to show their appreciation to the team)

David Williams and Vic Mauro travelled to Yarrabah in 2011 as part of Community Carnival activities, the trip being delayed by two weeks due to Cyclone Yasi. The boys spent all day in the community visiting all classrooms at Yarrabah State School delivering the Eat Well, Play Well, Stay Well program as well as an afternoon visit to the High School.

The Sea Eagles then hosted a community barbecue at the local PCYC where children and parents had the opportunity to chat with the players as well as play some cricket and touch footy with the fella’s.

Going forward we will continue to build our relationship with Yarrabah, helping to foster an already existent relationship between Covenant Christian School on the Northern Beaches and the Yarrabah Indigenous Council.

The Sea Eagles Read “remote” reading program will be trialed at Yarrabah State School along with two other country NSW Schools in 2011. Other synergies exist between the Sea Eagles and Yarrabah with their rugby league teams also the Sea Eagles and ex Manly player Leon Yeatman being the CEO of the Yarrabah community.
