Graduates from the 2013 School to Work program were recognised this morning at Campbelltown Catholic Club, with 26 students from Wests Tigers district amongst the group.


The School to Work program is designed to assist Aboriginal students in making a smooth transition from school into further education, employment or training.


Players Dene Halatau and Yileen Gordon attended the ceremony along with Wests Tigers Aboriginal Projects Officer, Tyson Birtles and CEO Grant Mayer.


The Parramatta Eels, Penrith Panthers, Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Wests Tigers are currently involved in the School to Work program- with a total of 200 students enrolled in this program across both Year 11 and 12.


After completing their Higher School Certificate last month, the graduating students have all found either work or have applied for University. The program has been greatly successful thus far with statistics showing a 96% success rate of school leavers.
