From Adversity to Opportunity
The Skyline Program we deliver invests in three key areas vital for equipping gifted and academically talented young people, who are financially and/or socially challenged, with the best chance of success at school and in life.
Our endeavour aims to see students transition to tertiary education or career of choice and reach their full potential and become positive members of their communities.
Skyline's dedicated program team creates a continuum of educational, emotional and practical support and resources by forming a strong school, companion teacher and parental support framework and partnership that wraps-around students whilst undertaking the Program.
Reimbursement of educational expenses incurred by students (school levies and fees, textbooks, uniforms, materials and academic requirements, travel and excursions) that would otherwise further impact families, already disadvantaged.
TRANSFORMATIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCES
Students attend unique Skyline & educator partner designed personal growth and development workshops, vocational seminars and a residential workshop, all of which are undertaken outside school hours and provided at no cost to students from within the funding allocation per student.
The Skyline workshop experiences combine the intimacy of pastoral care and career counselling, and equip students of high potential to survive, thrive and lead in an ever-changing educational and economic landscape.
The sessions are intended to inspire, encourage and empower students to:
- Develop quality skills, confidence and self-belief to manage and overcome financial and personal challenges
- Identify networking and scholarship opportunities that will optimise opportunities, with support provided to students in their application process
- Evaluate and discern education and career opportunities as pathways of choice and assist students to make informed decisions about future studies and career choices
- Connect with like-minded, aspirational young people
- Use introductions to tertiary institutions, professionals and role models as a means to visualise and experience a tertiary environment and help make the transition to tertiary education that much easier to comprehend
- Integrate into the broader alumni group, which will provide ongoing support. As students move through their secondary and tertiary education they form network of like minded peers who continue to support each other well into their university careers.
