In selecting students for the KAE academic potential is considered (i.e school results).
But results are not the sole criterion.
Leadership potential and community involvement are also important factors for selection.
All activities are selected to build confidence, instil self-belief, broaden horizons and inspire dreams. Activities include:
Coaching and support is provided by the Koorie Academy Liaison Officers (KALO) who meet with each academy member individually to capture their interests and aspirations
Koorie Academy of Excellence members are exposed to a broad range of leadership, cultural and social activities that are designed to get them thinking about what they are good at and what they aspire to be.
Too many capable Koorie young people do not capitalise on their potential.
Nearly a third of Koorie students who start Year 9 are no longer within the secondary education systems for the start of the following year. This attrition rate climbs to almost 50 per cent by the end of Year 10.
We want Koorie students to know that their time in school is important.
We also want them to know that school absences add up: they undermine learning and confidence in school.
To send this message we were adamant that KAE activities take place outside of school hours. We explain to parents of KAE students that we do not want to disrupt time in the classroom.
The northern suburbs are home to one on the largest urban populations of indigenous young people.
Approximately 1200 Koorie students attend school in this region. We want to ensure that their potential is realised.
Getting students to think about what they are interested in and exposing them to career options in that field.
In addition to exploring specific careers all KAE students acquire general job ready skills
