Primary School students in Western Sydney are being given the opportunity to dream, grow and get active thanks to the Future for All program.
The Future for All program has been developed to raise students’ aspirations for the future, increase academic engagement and fundamental movement skills. It is a future planning program for Primary Schools aimed at encouraging students to dream big and consider all potential possibilities after their completion of schooling.
In partnership with Western Sydney University, this year’s Future for All program will reach Year 6 students in 19 schools over ten events. The program provides students with the opportunity to learn about higher education and career planning and hopes to end some misconceptions they may have about university study.
The single day PDHPE focused program has already began with Lethbridge Park PS and Claremont Meadows PS being hosted at Western Sydney University Hawkesbury campus while Ingleburn PS and Sackville St PS were hosted at the Campbelltown Campus.
Each program day begins with a general information session and the viewing of a video on pathways in life and the importance of having a plan. Following this, there is a football clinic which emphasises the importance of physical education before students are given a campus tour and workshop that is run by Western Sydney University ambassadors.
