Girrawheen Clontarf Academy

In 2014 Girrawheen has been selected to become one of the sites of a Clontarf Foundation Academy. Find out more information about the Clontarf Foundation Academy.

What

The Clontarf Foundation exists to improve the education, discipline, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal men and by doing so equip them to participate more meaningfully in society.

The Clontarf Foundation conducts full-time mentoring programmes in selected high schools and colleges that cater for the specific educational needs of participants.

How

In partnership with a host School, the Academy will support students to remain at school until they complete Year 12.

Students are mentored to develop a range of life skills, employment aspirations and improved self-confidence.

The Foundation will continue to guide students as they transition from school to further study, training and / or employment.

Who

Any Aboriginal boy enrolled at a host School can apply to be part of the programme.

To maintain their position in the Academy participants need to show commitment towards the education programme, school activities and football training.

Why

The Clontarf Foundation involves participants in activities, camps and workplace visits to develop a broad range of life skills. Highlights include interstate and regional tours, inter-Academy activities and excursions.

When

We are currently accepting enrolments from prospective students in the area.
