Girls Academy

The Derby Girls Academy works within the school system to break down barriers such as drug and alcohol abuse, pregnancy and violence that prevent Aboriginal girls from completing their education. Sport and extra-curricular activities, intensive mentoring and counselling, and a structured reward system keep the girls engaged in their education and their future. An Academy girl can shape her own destiny, lift up her family, and transform her community.
