Macquarie mentoring leap program

This year 15 students from year 10 participated in Macquarie Mentoring LEAP program. The real highlight of the program was the university experience day and the aspirations the students gained towards higher education and a vibrant future. This program provides students with opportunities to participate in activities that open their minds to how their school studies connect to study options and career goals. The six mentors, this year provided a range of rigorously evaluated curriculum-based and extra-curricular activities which were designed to enhance the learning opportunities which build the students' confidence in their own ability in the classroom. 

"The LEAP program encouraged me to study harder and work towards my Higher School Certificate. It helped boost my confidence and interactions with other students. It gave me the life skills needed to grow as a person, and the confidence to think that one day I could attend university." - 2016 Mentee.
