This week has seen High School students from across the Parramatta region visit the Eels Educate classroom to participate in a program designed to assist them with making positive lifestyle decisions and take part in activities to encourage confidence and self-belief.


A group of female students from Arthur Phillip High School and Year 10 students from Merrylands High School visited the classroom over two days where they took part in classroom based discussions and activities focusing on Responsibility.


The students from both schools offered an insight to their own levels of responsibility, where they can improve and identified individuals who demonstrate such qualities within their own lives.


Following the classroom activities, students were given a tour of the stadium and an outdoor session of physical activity focusing on teamwork and sportsmanship.




In connection with Granville Community Centre, a group of Granville Boys High School students began their eight week course with Eels Educate.


Participating in the Rise Above program, designed to assist the boys in creating an awareness for necessary change to ensure a positive outlook at school and life in general, the boys took part in classroom based activities surrounding self-understanding and identity.




They identified their goals, hobbies and general information relating to themselves, their lives and situations outside of school.


Focusing on teamwork and respect, the students then headed out for a game of touch footy where they displayed sportsmanship and support for their peers.
