Indigenous students to Follow Dream

Albany Advertiser

Nearly 30 Follow the Dream students attended the annual Compact Signing event at the City of Albany Civic Rooms earlier this month.

The Compact Signing is a formal document all Follow the Dream students, their parents and their co-ordinators sign each year to show their commitment to the students’ education.

Follow the Dream is a State-wide academic program for aspirant indigenous secondary students.

Eligibility relates to good behaviour, attendance and academic performance.

Follow the Dream students The Tidswell Sisters performed several songs and Year 11 Follow the Dream student and City of Albany youth citizen of the year Anthony Turner spoke to the audience about his recent trip to Canberra as one of the WA representatives at the National Indigenous Youth Parliament.

Follow the Dream co-ordinator Stuart Myers said the event was well attended.

“Having all the local principals and the like throws a bit of weight behind the evening and shows the kids and the families the kind of support they do have within the community,” he said.
