Warwick Senior High School engages with a number of outreach organisations to support Indigenous secondary students to reach their potential and explore pathways towards tertiary studies, further training, and employment.
Year 8 students Jannika Zimmerman and Luvata Hodder gained selection to attend the University of Western Australia (UWA) Discovery Day, introducing students to the university environment through a range of hands on activities at different study areas on campus.
Year 7 and 8 Creating the Dream students Luvata Hodder, Rueben Penny, Brendan Whitnell, Sharniel Biljabu, Etty Abdullah, Lashante Robinson and Ozyfa Rind participated in an overnight camp at St Catherine’s College (UWA). Students enjoyed a series of challenges and cultural activities.
Year 9 and 10 Creating/Follow the Dream students Jamie Abdullah, Oliver Dhu, Angus Hartnett, Hayden Lawrence, Trent Woods, Jamahl Martin, Brody Pickett, Charlize Truscott and Corey Whitnell travelled to Dwellingup for a three day camp where the focus was on personal challenge, teamwork and goal setting.
Congratulations to all Warwick students who said a big ‘yes’ to new opportunities!
None of this would be possible without the ongoing support of the Follow the Dream Outreach Program, the Graham Polly Farmer Foundation and the UWA School of Indigenous Studies.
