ASPIRE is an outreach program organised by the University of New South Wales, working in communities where the number of students who go on to university is lower than average. Students from Year 10 and 11 at Coonabarabran High School participated in workshops run by ASPIRE on 1 November . Students engaged in discussion surrounding various aspects of life at university, including the benefits and disadvantages of enrolling. The ASPIRE presenters were dynamic and good humoured, offering some valuable pieces of advice to ATAR intending students. The students are to be commended on their mature conduct during the workshops.
Good Morning everyone and thank you for allowing Coonabarabran High School to be a part of this event. It means a lot to me and to my fellow students to be actively participating in community events that encourage literacy and numeracy.
