Clontarf Foundation - Outback Adventure In 2015, the Clontarf Foundation established an academy at Endeavour High School in my electorate of Cook. Catering for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander male students from years 7-12, the Academy exists to improve their education, discipline, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects. By doing so this equips them to participate meaningfully in society. I have seen firsthand the results the program is delivering locally and wanted to share this experience with others. So in August I joined some Clontarf graduates, their mentors and some of the business leaders who financially support the program on an outback trek to Bourke and Brewarrina. The aim was to give the kids another experience outside of school and footy. A mentoring type exercise allowing the boys to converse with people who have life experiences of their own to share and meet the Alumna. Visiting the Bourke and Brewarrina academies was further affirmation to me that the Governments, both State and Federal, should continue to support the Foundation. The boys and community attitude towards the boys future is one of promise and blue sky. The boys all have long term plans and goals for their future which would not exist without the Clontarf academies in their schools. I hope to make this journey an annual pilgrimage to the various Clontarf academies around Australia. Again taking with me mentor like figures from all walks of life, together with the financial support of Clontarf sponsors who made the trek possible. All transportation, meals and accommodation (mostly camping in some of the most beautiful outback areas of NSW) were directly covered by the Clontarf Foundation. I look forward to making similar trips with these amazing young leaders in the future

I wish to inform you that I recently appeared on the Channel 10 television show Have You Been Paying Attention which aired on Monday 25 September 2017. As part of its usual practice, Have You Been Paying Attention provides an appearance fee of $1,000 to those who appear on the show. I asked that Have You Been Paying Attention instead directly provide the $1,000 to a charity in my local electorate, Very Special Kids. Very Special Kids and its hospice provides specialised respite care for children from across Victoria, and provides their families with the support they need while dealing with disability, major illness, and end-of-life care. As a long term support of Very Special Kids I was pleased to have the fee instead directed to their very important work.
