Clontarf Academy providing the opportunity
A local group of students from Mount Austin High School were recently invited to attend a Gala event at Admiralty House in Sydney with the Governor General of Australia, Peter Cosgrove.
The event was held by the Clontarf Foundation and presented an opportunity for local Clontarf academy students who have displayed good behaviour at school and had high attendance to interact with the Foundation's senior corporate partners.
Academy Director Jermaine Packer said the opportunity was provided as a reward to those students who demonstrated the expected behaviours of the academy students. It was an invaluable and unique experience for the boys.
In the relatively short time the Academy has been operational the students have embraced the program with vigour, engaging its members through a diverse range of activities which build leadership, self-esteem and overall well-being.
