AFL players tackle tough topics

Western Bulldogs player Cody Weightman and former GWS Giant Matthew Buntine visited Berwick Campus today to give a thought-provoking talk to Year 9 students on mental health, identity, and stereotypes of masculinity.

Both players discussed their experiences in dealing with the pressures of professional sport, the importance of seeking support from others, and vulnerability. The students engaged well with the topics and asked some great questions.

Cody attended Beaconhills College Pakenham from 2007–2014 and Matt from 2006–2011.
