Post-school opportunities inspire regional Indigenous students

Tuesday, 27 June, 2017

More than 250 regional and remote Indigenous students who attend boarding school in the metropolitan area will be encouraged to further their education through tertiary studies, employment and training at the 2017 Future Footprints Expo.

AISWA coordinator Ms Roni Forrest said Future Footprints aimed to increase the retention of Indigenous students from Years 10 to 12 and boost the number of Indigenous students completing Year 12.

“The primary goal of the program is to ensure the engagement of Indigenous students with the education system, to foster a sense of belonging and self-worth, and provide Indigenous students with the confidence, knowledge and skills to succeed,” Ms Forrest said.
