In League in Harmony

The NRL's In League in Harmony program has been running successfully at Sir Joseph Banks High School for many years.

The program aims to promote social cohesion by tackling issues such as social disengagement, racism, gender equality and bullying. Participation in the program helps students improve their interpersonal skills by acknowledging, appreciating and celebrating the diversity amongst their peers and the wider community.

The program is a combination of theory and practical based activities that have been designed around the NRL's values of excellence, inclusiveness, courage and teamwork. Through experiences provided as part of the program, participants have a greater capacity to contribute positively to a more socially cohesive society.

In League In Harmony is delivered by Game Development and Education Officers with the support of Ambassadors (footy players who are well known to participants). The program culminates in a Harmony Day festival with all participating schools.
