NRL Cowboys House has been officially opened in Townsville today – a facility that will provide significant benefits to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families across Far North Queensland.
The facility, supported by a $9.5 million investment by the Australian Government, will help young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders from remote areas in Queensland to complete their secondary education and access school-aged apprenticeships.
The first 25 students from remote communities around North Queensland have already settled into the House, built on land near the Pimlico TAFE College.
The young men, aged between 12 and 16, are living at the House being managed by the Cowboys Community Foundation which will provide a home for them as they move toward completing Year 12 in schools across Townsville.
