Helping to AIME higher in 2016!
AIME stands for the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience. It is a dynamic educational program that aims to provide support to Indigenous students and give students involved the skills, opportunities, belief and confidence to grow and pursue their dreams. AIME in the Illawarra takes place at the University of Wollongong and is grounded in small group and one-on-one mentoring. Students can work on building self-confidence, positive attitudes and leadership skills while setting and making steps towards their personal goals. AIME has assisted students identify goals and work towards completing school and achieving post-school success through admission to University, admission to TAFE, seeking apprenticeships or traineeships and any other life goal that might seem too big to tackle.
Students have meet with Steph from AIME who has discussed what AIME looks like for students in 2016 over some pizza. Many students have already returned their note to attend. If you would like your student to attend, please have them return their note as soon as possible to Mr Foster. AIME begins in term 2 for all year groups and finishes in October 2016 with a final celebration.
