Follow the Dream supports the aspirations of Aboriginal students to successfully complete their secondary schooling.

Achieving academic success lies at the heart of the program through students having access to individualised after-school tutoring and mentoring that improves performance across all areas of the curriculum.

Personalised Learning Plans help guide the student in working toward achieving their goals and making an after-school commitment to access tutoring up to four times per week.

Students experience a range of activities that enrich learning and broaden horizons. Post-school study and career options are explored, culture is celebrated and general capabilities that encompass knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions are developed to assist students to live and work 

Follow The Dream encourages students to Dream Big with purpose and in a setting that creates a sense of belonging. On completion of school, Follow The Dream students are well prepared to embark on successful career pathways and to identify as leaders and role models amongst their peers, families   and communities
