Albany Follow The Dream

The Albany Follow the Dream programme is proudly hosted by Albany Senior High School and supports almost 70 aspirational students from Albany Senior High School, North Albany Senior High School, Mount Barker Community College, and Denmark Senior High School.

Students selected to join the programme show strong signs of success within their schooling and would like extra academic and pastoral support to achieve their full potential. In order to become part of Follow The Dream, students must have high levels of school attendance, behaviour and academic achievement.

The program aims to steadily increase the number of Indigenous students completing Year 12 and going on to further study. Higher levels of education open doors to excellent employment opportunities, with the prospect of eventually moving into meaningful work at a highly skilled level. The Follow the Dream Program helps Indigenous students to set their sights on such opportunities and take the necessary steps to achieving their goals.

Like a ripple spreading through water, every Indigenous child realising his or her dream becomes the inspiration for another.

By becoming part of the Follow The Dream program, students have access to:

  • A safe and supportive environment to study after school, equipped with computers and educational resources
  • Access to tuition to assist with homework, study habits and goal setting
  • An individualised documented learning plan
  • Career guidance and mentoring
  • Educational and cultural excursions and camps to develop knowledge, confidence and skills

"Follow the Dream has shown me many career opportunities."
"The Program provides quality tutoring, which has definitely improved my marks and level of understanding."
"Tutoring has made me commit more to my schoolwork."
"Without it, I wouldn’t have been as focussed; I wouldn’t have got the work done. The tutoring allowed me to get the grades I wanted."
