WELCOME TO NRL COWBOYS HOUSE
Removing distance as a barrier to accessing quality secondary education
NRL Cowboys House opened in 2017 and provides supported accommodation for 104 young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from some of North Queensland’s most remote and educationally disadvantaged communities, enabling them to access quality secondary education opportunities in Townsville.
The facility is a purpose-designed and culturally respectful environment, providing the stability and support students need to be able to fulfil their potential while building long-lasting friendships and life skills along the way.
Managed by the Cowboys Community Foundation, the charity arm of the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys, NRL Cowboys House is a joint initiative between the National Rugby League, North Queensland Cowboys, the Queensland Government and the Australian Government.
