For the past ten years, the Annual Academy Showcase has brought hundreds of students to Perth for a three-day leadership camp. The showcase’s intensive itinerary included activities related to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, confidence building, health and fitness and pathways to higher education turning what can often be a daunting prospect for high school students – their first visit to a university – into a fun, culturally relevant and personally inspiring experience.
Due to the Girls Academy’s rapid expansion, 2017 will be the first year where three showcases – Western Australia, New South Wales and the Northern Territory – will take place in the same calendar year.
Each Showcase forms part of the Girls Academy’s structured reward system that rewards girls for achieving set targets and goals including:
- 80 percent attendance rate
- Outstanding behaviour at school and within the community
- Academic achievement and improvement
- Commitment to training
WA Showcase: Curtin University from 14th August to 16th August
