Overview

Future Focus is a two-year program for students in Years 7 – 8. It supports the transition from primary to secondary schooling and aims to provide a connection to education along with personal, study, and leadership skills. It also provides knowledge and skills to cope with issues such as bullying, peer pressure, drugs, alcohol, stress, and mental health issues.

“I may be 13, but that can’t stop me… because I have the right mindset, because I believe in myself, because I can do anything, because I am a dreamer.”

Kobe, Future Focus program participant
