For the fifth straight year, the Titans have hosted the NRL’s “In League in Harmony” Day at The Club’s High Performance Centre at Parkwood Village.
With a focus on respect, responsibility and inclusiveness, the NRL’s In League In Harmony (ILIH) program aims to promote social cohesion by addressing issues such as social disengagement, racism, gender inequality and bullying by empowering youth to be agents of change for a more cohesive society.
The six-week program ended today with a graduation and reward, hosted by the NRL and Titans staff.
The In League In Harmony program’s delivery method is a non-formal educational approach.
It is achieved by using rugby league as the vehicle to educate key competencies of individuals and groups in order to contribute to personal development and sustainable social change.
The highlight of the day undoubtedly came when a number of Titans players visited the group during their tour of the facility.
Over 120 students took part in the most recent program, with kids from Marsden State High, Capalaba State College and Trinity College (Beenleigh) all having a great day out.
Growing up in Ipswich, and at only 22 himself, Titans winger Phil Sami remembers taking part in the In League In Harmony Day festivities.
“I was a young kid from Ipswich, and I remember Harmony Day and coming to days like this,” Sami said.
“It was always great to see the players, and also the facilities.
“It was always a great day and I hope that they are having a great day.”
