Broncos team in town to visit local school students

BRISBANE Broncos players are visiting schools in central Queensland this week to pass on valuable life skills.

The three-day visit, which began on Tuesday, involves co-captain Justin Hodges, principal player Jharal Yow Yeh and Broncos legend Michael Hancock visiting schools in Biloela, Moura, Yeppoon, Rockhampton and Gladstone.

Five time grand final winner Hancock will be in Gladstone on Wednesday, visiting Gladstone State High School at 9.30am, Toolooa State High School at 11am and Chanel College at 2.15pm.   

He'll be joined by game development manager Paul Dyer and members of the game development team.

The visits have been organised by mining giant Anglo American.

Branding and events coordinator Jackie Noble said the company was keen to provide local students with advice on career options after school with its apprentice program, vacation work and graduate program.

"As we progress with plans to develop Callide mine's Boundary Hill South extension project, we will continue to provide economic stability for our employees, local suppliers and the wider central Queensland community," Ms Noble said.

Thursday's sessions in Biloela and Moura will be attended by students from local primary schools as well as those from the outlying Mt Murchison Thangool, Prospect, Goovigen, Jambin, Baralaba, Bauhinia, Banana and Theodore State Schools.
