My Hero Reads Too highlights the importance and engages primary school students to read regularly, sending positive messages aimed at fostering a love of learning for life. Titans staff, and often Titans players, demonstrate the importance of reading and discuss with the children their favourite books.
The program is flexible and can consist of one-off reading sessions or can accommodate individual school needs. The students are read to in either modelled or guided sessions which are planned in consultation with the contact teacher.
Titans representatives will visit the schools to coach children in basic or advanced rugby league skills through the use of fun and educational based drills and games. Coaching Clinics are suitable for children of all ages and can be scheduled around normal class timetables. Depending on availability, Titans can spend a day at your school on the field or in the classroom.
The physical ability of the children does not matter, as the Coaching Clinics can be adapted to suit the skill level of the group. If you are interested in introducing Rugby League to your class, rewarding your students or building a healthy and active environment in your classroom or school, a Titans Coaching Clinic is just what you are looking for.
If schools and community organisations are unsure about how to best make use of the Titans, they can take the opportunity by engaging Titans representatives into their own customized event. Previous events that the Titans have been involved with include assemblies, walk-a-thons, school fetes, fundraisers, athletics days, careers days, team and leadership building challenges and carnivals. No matter the event, the Titans will add their own brand of excitement to the day.
Healthy Lifestyles was developed to engage and encourage primary school students to live healthy lifestyles and make positive choices. Students learn the importance of good nutrition and exercise for their overall wellbeing and are encouraged to consider both on a regular basis.
Titans representatives explain to students why eating healthy, being physically active and expressing their feelings through fun and interactive activities is important from a young age. Titans staff are often accompanied on the school visits by current Titans players who are seen as role models and receive many questions from highly engaged students.
This program has been created to bring a strong focus to the shocking problem of bullying growing throughout primary and high schools. Titans representatives talk to students about their own personal experiences with bullying and encourage students to take a stance against this life threatening problem. As part of the program students are taught to identify the different signs of bullying and shown ways to resolve what is happening before it gets out of hand using positive techniques. The different types of bullying are clearly outlined and the effects they have on students both in and out of school life.
Through the Dream, Believe, Achieve program, students are encouraged to build healthy lifestyles and find positive ways to discover and achieve their dreams. The program raises important issues such as education, self confidence and setting goals amongst high school students.
Students identify with Titans players due to their diverse backgrounds and their openness about not only their Rugby League aspirations but their personal interests. Titans representatives provide the class with a personal account of what it is like and what it takes to be a part of the professional sporting world.
