The NRL Indigenous School to Work Program continued to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in 2020, to ensure they completed their education and continued to focus on their goals and dreams for the future.
Melbourne Storm player and proud Wiradjuri/Darkinjung man Nicho Hynes acknowledged the achievements of Year 12 students who remained focused on their education in a trying year, and have now successfully graduated.
This has been such a challenging year and you have done a tremendous job.Nicho Hynes On NRL School to Work graduates
"I wish you all the best in whatever your future holds for you - keep striving for your dreams."
While Year 12 students had to resort to online learning and completed their secondary education remotely, the success of the program and its commitment to participants has helped students remain focused and motivated.
The program is in its sixth year and is proudly supported by the Australian Government.
As part of NAIDOC Week celebrations, Melbourne Storm would like to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of the Year 12 NRL School to Work students in completing their High School Education.
The club wishes you all the best for your future endeavours, and we are proud to have you as part of the Melbourne Storm family.
