In addition to academic support, course counselling and career advice, the program also focuses on leadership development and cultural awareness. Visits from Aboriginal elders and Aboriginal community members form an integral part of the program.
Excursions are an important aspect of the program and students have the opportunity to attend a variety of trips, including visits to universities and careers expos; performances by dance and theatre companies such as the Yirra Yaakin Aboriginal Theatre Company and Bangarra Dance Company; and reward camps to build a sense of belonging.
Many Follow the Dream students are also members of the School Representative Council. In 2016 the Program was on the metropolitan advisory committee for the Commissioner for Children and Young People.
Swan View Follow the Dream students continue to spread their wings and many of our students have been selected for state wide, national and even international leadership programs. The students truly embody the school’s motto ‘Dream, Believe, Achieve’.
