    Description

     

    Using the passion that Aboriginal boys have for football allows Clontarf to attract the boys to school. But it is not a sporting program.

    Each Clontarf Academy, formed in partnership with the local school, is focussed on encouraging behavioural change, developing positive attitudes, assisting students to complete school and secure employment. Fundamental to this, is the development of values, skills and abilities that will assist the boys to achieve better life outcomes.

    Through a diverse mix of activities, the full-time, local Clontarf staff mentor and counsel students while the school caters for the educational needs of each student.

    __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 

    Since opening its first Academy for 25 boys on the campus of the Clontarf Aboriginal College in Perth, Western Australia in 2000, the Foundation has grown rapidly and has been consistently successful.

    We now cater for approximately 2,800 boys in 54 schools across Western Australia, Northern Territory, Victoria and New South Wales.
