TryTime! is an educational program run in North Queensland secondary schools targeting year 8 and year 9 students.
It has a key focus on influencing this student demographic on making the right individual choices based on age-appropriate information and practical sessions.
TryTime! uses the theme “only dead fish go with the flow” as a reminder that making informed choices sometimes means going against the flow.
The program was developed in direct consultation with Education Queensland and Catholic Education.
The program engages students through a series of interactive sessions covering four modules that address social issues identified as having a direct negative impact on learning and potentially long-term life outcomes.
Each TryTime! session is run by a team of trained Cowboys team members.
