EELS EDUCATE - EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS TO INSPIRE OUR STUDENTS
The Eels Educate program has been set up to benefit primary and secondary school students throughout the region.
The Parramatta District Rugby League Club has organised a dedicated classroom at the Parramatta Stadium for the Eels Educate program to operate. The Parramatta Leagues Club proudly supports the Eels Educate program financially with a generous grant through the ClubGRANTS program annually. The Eels Educate program is also strongly supported by the Pirtek Parramatta Eels Rugby League Club with the Parramatta Eels players attending classes when available.
The Eels Educate incorporates the NRL One Community "Eat Well, Play Well, Stay Well" together with the "Dream, Believe, Achieve" and "Try Reading" programs. These tailored programs are supplemented by the Department of Education (NSW) following syllabuses: K-6 P.D.H.P.E, P.D.H.P.E 7-10, P.A.S.S 7-10, and S.L.R stage 6. Eels Educate is a valuable teaching resource - it helps impact the positive message of healthy and active lifestyles, literacy and numeracy with younger children and increase student engagement.
It also uses the values of team sports, striving to teach life skills such as leadership, team work, resilience, and the importance of acceptance and tolerance in our culturally diverse community.
This unique classroom setting at the Parramatta Stadium is a fun and innovative way for students to learn about Rugby League, healthy and active lifestyles, making positive lifestyle choices and other syllabus content that encourages the students to understand the benefits of education and the importance of learning.
Eels Educate Centre is a school excursion venue for schools within the Parramatta District to visit and gain this unique educational experience through the use of the Parramatta Eels Rugby League players as a delivery tool.
Each lesson has both a theoretical and practical component, and the availability of a connection lesson that class teachers may perform back at school for continual learning.
Using the profile of the National Rugby League and the Parramatta Eels, our goal is to encourage students to be healthy and active through engaging education programs. The program aims to build self-esteem, social skills, resilience and leadership and with a focus on literacy and numeracy.
Also, encompassing the values of team sports, the Eels Educate centre strives to teach life skills such as teamwork, fair play, improving skills and the importance of acceptance and tolerance in our culturally diverse community.
Delivery of the Eels Educate program is managed by Ryan James (Bachelor of Health Science, Diploma in Education) of the Parramatta District Rugby League Club, in conjunction with the National Rugby League and the NSW Rugby League Western Sydney Academy.
