We are the children of Palm Island!

September 15, 2017

As Andrew makes his way through Rockhampton and Gladstone this weekend, we thought we'd share this heartwarming clip of  Palm Island's Bwgcolman Community School  students singing the school anthem during Andrew and Cathy's recent visit. What a treat!  





It has been a jam-packed week full of excitement and activities for the Cathy Freeman Foundation's community partners. Both Palm Island and Woorabinda celebrated the end of Term 3 Starting Block Awards whilst our NT community partners will celebrate next week. The Starting Block Program encourages students to set and achieve goals. At the end of each term, students who have shown achievement or improvement are  rewarded with educational literacy or sporting packs. 


The event is run by the Foundation's community staff and is an important fixture in the school calendar. The Awards are a way in which the Foundation connects with parents and families and an opportunity for students to be recognised for their academic success in front of their peers, teachers, family and other community members.


Thank you to everyone who has supported programs like this by donating to Andrew's 10,000km drive.  If you'd like to make a donation and experience the thrill of riding in a 1920s vintage motorcar, you too can join Andrew in the Vauxhall as he makes his way down the east coast of Australia. Andrew's latest passenger is journalist and commentator, Mr Charles Rogers from Historic Racing Australia. Thanks to generous supporters like Mr Rogers we are helping more Indigenous children realise their potential in school and beyond. 


If you are interested in joining Andrew on this epic journey for a minimum donation of $1500 please contact us on 03 9686 4813 or alternatively you can make a donation here . Any amount great or small will have a lasting impact.
