The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have partnered with Central North Police District to support the Bourke High School’s Clontarf Academy program throughout 2022 by providing training shirts and rugby league jumpers to the school students.

The Clontarf Foundation exists to improve the education, discipline, life skills, self-esteem, and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men, and by doing so, equip them to participate more meaningfully in society.

The Clontarf Foundation uses a unique, innovative, and highly successful approach to target one of the most at-risk groups in contemporary Australian society – young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men.

Using the existing passion that these boys have for sport, particularly rugby league, allows Clontarf to initially attract young blokes to school, and then keep them coming.

It is not just a sporting program – it’s about developing the values, skills and abilities that will assist the boys to transition into meaningful employment and achieve better life outcomes.

Full-time, locally based Clontarf staff mentor and counsel students on a range of behavioural and lifestyle issues while the school caters for their education needs. Any Aboriginal male enrolled at the school is eligible to participate in the Clontarf Academy.

Using supportive relationships and environment, the students develop improved self-esteem and confidence which enables them to participate in education, employment, and society in a positive way.
