The reality is a lack of access to high schools which involves long travel distances or living away from home. In particular, University and higher education can be a foreign and distant option.

We visited with them recently to share their story in celebration of NAIDOC Week.
As we welcome Year 12 students to the University of Sydney for the Bunga Barrabugu Winter Program from Sunday, we’re so proud to see Nathaniel Tamwoy featured in this video!
He’s an alumni of the WMBB Summer Program and BB Winter Program, and is now in his second year studying Occupational Therapy and playing elite rugby at the University of Sydney.
