Established in 2006, students from Years 7-12 attend the dedicated Enrichment Centre up to three afternoons per week after school.
The Follow the Dream (FTD) program in Port Augusta supports Aboriginal students in years 7–12, who aspire to successfully complete their secondary schooling, show aptitude for learning, and demonstrate a positive approach towards education.
Throughout the academic year, students also engage in a range of extra-curricular activities that broaden their horizons, build resilience, develop confidence and promote cultural pride.
The program introduces students to a wealth of experiences, opens their eyes to a huge range of post-school pathways, and encourages them to dream big. Students who are part of the ‘Follow the Dream Family’ gain a sense of identity, belonging, and purpose. Not only do they embark on a positive post-school pathway, but they emerge as strong role models for their peers, siblings and wider community.
Port Augusta Follow the Dream is partnered with Port Augusta Secondary School, BHP, National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA), One Rail and Ant and Mary Simpson.
