Dream, Believe, Achieve has been designed by teachers to educate students about the importance of having a dream. The resource uses the profile of the NRL, the players and the game of Rugby League to inspire students to achieve in their chosen fields.

Based on the National Rugby League values of Courage and Excellence, Dream Believe Achieve is comprised of an educational short film featuring 18 of the game’s elite players as well as an accompanying 9 lesson unit plan. The lessons are mapped to the Australian Curriculum and the New Zealand Curriculum. Other key themes embedded throughout the resource are identity, decision making and resilience.



Rugby League’s new Wellbeing program aims to harness the NRL’s popularity to empower and educate students to value wellbeing in their own lives. Providing a holistic view of health, each of the seven comprehensive lessons establishes strong links between Nutrition, Physical Activity and Mental Health to our overall wellbeing.

Designed to meet the Content Descriptions of ACARA and the New Zealand Curriculum Objectives for students in Years 3 and 4, some parts of this resource could also be adapted for students in Years 5 and 6.

The NRL Wellbeing resource features Literacy and Numeracy tasks as well as Critical Thinking activities and a practical component. It can be used by teachers as individual lessons or a complete unit of work.



At the Learning with League Centre, students will have the opportunity to participate in activities with a focus on Literacy, Personal Development and Health and PBL. Students will engage in these activities to coincide with general positive characteristics of Rugby League including teamwork, support, encouragement, healthy lifestyles and determination.




NRL’s One Community has developed a powerful new ‘Tackle Bullying’ DVD which aims to empower students to stand up for themselves and others who are being bullied. The DVD features NRL Legends Andrew Ryan, Nathan Hindmarsh, Hazem El Masri and Mario Fenech who all inspire students to take action.
