School to Work graduates prepared for future success
Wests Tigers would like to congratulate the 2014 School to Work graduates who were recognised at a special event on Tuesday.
The 2014 graduates included Wests Tigers School to Work participants Kiarnie Jennings, Raegan Pocock and Daniel Roberts.
Wests Tigers are proud to be a part of the School to Work program, which works closely with Indigenous students to help them finish school and progress into full-time employment.
Jennings, Pocock and Roberts have all successfully completed the program and are progressing from school into employment.
Kiarnie Jennings attended Sarah Redfern High School and is working towards a career as a Police Officer. She’s also a talented AFL player and is a part of an Australian team heading to New Zealand for a 17 day tour on Thursday.
Daniel Roberts also attended Sarah Redfern High School and aspires to be a sport and fitness training. Roberts was also a part of the Brydens Lawyers Wests Tigers Academy Squad in 2014.
Raegan Pocock is planning on becoming a Beauty Therapist and attended Saint Patrick’s College.
Recently retired Wests Tigers player Liam Fulton attended the graduation ceremony and said it was great to see the students achieve their goals.
“It’s great that Wests Tigers can be a part of a program like School to Work that makes a real difference to the lives of the students,” said Fulton. “We’re proud to be able to assist students like Kiarnie, Raegan and Daniel to achieve their goals.”
The students were guided through the program by Wests Tigers Project Officers Dean Feeney and Belinda Solomon.
