Follow the Dream
Follow the Dream is an academic program for aspiring Aboriginal students. The primary aim of the program is to increase the number of Aboriginal students graduating from Year 12 and continuing on with either tertiary education, or skilled Vocational employment.
Follow the Dream has been operating at Broome Senior High School since 2006. In this period of time many of its graduates have moved onto productive post-school outcomes across a wide spectrum of vocations and training pathways.
Follow the Dream seeks to engage students who demonstrate the following:
- a desire to do well at school
- good classroom behaviour and attitude
- good literacy skills and/or numeracy skills
- and strong attendance.
The program operates during after school hours Monday to Thursday and provides students with access to tutors; computer and internet access; on-going advice about careers and school, and refreshments. Students will have the opportunity to participate in our vocational camps program, as well as attend other excursions.
Student members of the program are expected to commit to achieving and maintaining good outcomes at school. There is an expectation that they maintain an “aspiration” to succeed at high school.
Formal selection of Year 7 students will begin at the end of Term 1, however, prospective applicants can begin attending the centre from early in Term 1 on a trial basis.
Follow the Dream is currently supported by our school in a partnership with the Department of Education WA and the Polly Farmer Foundation.
