Many of our students are the first in their families to graduate Year 12.

Neru Mene, who graduated from Year 12 at Djarragun in December, is an excellent example.

Neru moved from her home on Badu Island two years ago to complete her high-school studies at Djarragun.

When she graduated in December, she became the first in her family to do so. Neru and her family are full of pride. “My dad just cried on the phone to me, and my mum—she’s happy”, said Neru.

It is wonderful to see students like Neru change dreams into reality by getting their high-school education and setting themselves up for the future.
