The ANU College of Law
Australia’s National Law School

Congratulations Canberra College!

By GnT - 1 December 2009 9

Canberra College has won the inaugural Schools First National Impact award including a $750 000 prize for their CC Cares program.

The program helps young parents continue their education and works in partnership with health providers to ensure young families have the health care, food, accomodation and transport necessary to complete their schooling.

The program sounds fantastic and it is great to see the good work of dedicated staff in the education and health sectors being recognised. Congratulations also to the young people who have taken advantage of the program to ensure that unexpected life events don’t necessarily means they can’t go on to get their Year 12 certificate, and whatever else they want to achieve in life.

What’s Your opinion?

Well done, Canberra College. Perhaps the Education Department can look at expanding the program to other schools

Pathetic.

If you say so. The comment stands, though.

Wouldn’t it be better to just buy ’em a box of rubbers in the first place?

As my Gran said when I got knocked up, “She’s not the first and she won’t be the last.”

Fair enough. Perhaps I should re-phrase my comment into lefty Canberran.

“Education is the key”.

This is exactly the sort of help and support young parents need to enable them to live happy, productive lives. I am really excited that a program like this exists and only wish there had been something like it in my generation. Congratulations to all those involved!

What an outstanding decision, and what a truely wonderful outreach program. I have often heard people judge and criticise teenage parents, throught their own narrow minded beliefs and prejudices.

We need to support young parents, help them to learn and grow and develop, so they in tern can help their children to become happy and productive members of our society.

Those teenage parents and their offspring, have as much potential to be our future leaders and thinkers as anyone else.

This program and this award are to be commended by all of us who care about people, and whose emotional intelligence sees the value of human life.

Congrats from here too. I am familiar with this program because I Freecycled quite a few baby/toddler items that were collected by staff to set up the facilities at the college and/or make available for the students at home.
