The Club today visited Moriah College in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs to deliver the award-running Roosters Against Racism program.

Led by Club legend Anthony Minichiello and U20s star Grant Garvey, the Year 5 students filled the College's auditorium to hear the Premiership-winning Captain speak on the different forms of racism in society, where racism happens and targetted groups.

Something Minichiello believes is as important a message as any other delivered at school.

"It's a hugely important message, we need to educate kids that racism in any form is not acceptable," Minichiello said.

"I'm passionate about this program, as is the whole Roosters Club, as we have a job to do as people in the position we're in to encourage the right things in the next generation."

The students were also shown clips from the media in recent seasons displaying acts of racism on social media, leading the group to discuss how to deal with comments made on social platforms and the need to not retaliate to anything said.

With examples including NRL player Ben Barba and AFL star Adam Goodes, the program also allows students to interact via a quiz at the end of the presentation to reinforce the day's learnings.

Each participant also had the chance to pick-up a Roosters Poster, Fact Sheet and Wristband as a gift from the Club for being part of the day.
