WGA recently sponsored two students from WA and one from NT to attend the 2018 Girls Academy “Year 12 Summit” in Canberra. The summit was held earlier this month and featured guest speakers including Samantha Harris, an international model and David Jones fashion ambassador and Kristal Kinsela, 2017 NSW Aboriginal Woman of the year.
Girls Academy is Australia’s leading in-school program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. It aims to support Aboriginal girls to complete their secondary education and assist them in the transition into life after school.
Krystah Thomas, receptionist in our Darwin office, was a part of the Palmerston Girls Academy while in school and through the program was able to travel to the 2013 Year 12 Summit in Sydney and compete in the Hottest 7s rugby competition.
