Welcome to the fourth Shooting Stars Update, which sees us reach August in what has been an action and activity packed year to date.

As we stopped to reflect at the half way mark of the year, we were pleased to report on some significant successes for our Shooting Stars participants and team. Some of these are highlighted below:

·      The program is fully staffed with a team of 16, with 60% of employees identifying as Indigenous.

·      60% of 300 participants are maintaining an average school attendance rate of over 80%

·      Participants across all programs have maintained or improved their attendance from Term 4 in 2016 to Term 1 in 2017; the average improvement rate was 14%.

·      Comparative data from Term 1 2016 to Term 1 2017 also showed an average improvement across all participants of 9%, equating to almost a week per term.

·      A growing number of corporate and grant support including Horizon Power, Sandfire Resources, Dept of Communities, WA, Dove – Self Esteem Project, the Coca Cola Australia Foundation.
