Summary of activities

This year we ran our programs in over 400 schools nationally, 100 of those schools where in remote and outback Indigenous Schools which are in the main trapped in a socio-economic nightmare for their young students, with a lack of resources and poor home environments combining to create incredibly difficult formative development in their early years. Students at these schools identify as being the most disadvantaged of any state. Shocking statistics show abuse and neglect in the home, extremely low school attendance levels, poor outcomes, unhappy student/teacher relations and worst of all, horrific self harm and attrition rates, where child suicides are the worst in the developed world at more than 13 times our national average!
