A week at NRL Cowboys House is busy.

In April students joined Palm Island community to break a Guinness World Record for the most dancers doing the same Corroboree.

In the same week, students marched in the Townsville ANZAC Day parade.

They also took a tour with the crew of the Coral Trekker on Magnetic Island.

Cowboys House Head of boarding, Stuart Ward says they are always doing something to support students interests as well as introduce them to some new experiences.

‘Cowboys House is indeed a unique and exciting opportunity for young men coming from remote communities,’ says Ward.

‘Our primary purpose is education, however, we also have a strong focus on co-curricular activities.’

‘For all of us it is a wonderful opportunity and if we take the opportunity in both hands, our dreams do not just have to be dreams, but can actually be actioned.’
