KARRATHA CLONTARF ACADEMY - FROM KARRATHA TO BROOME TO CANBERRA

The Karratha Clontarf Academy recently took 37 boys (Years 7-9) on their annual Term 1 camp to Broome. The boys joined with other Clontarf Academies from Broome, Derby, Fitzroy Crossing, Halls Creek and Kununurra to take part in the Clontarf West Kimberley Shield Football Carnival. This was the first time Karratha has taken two teams to the carnival and was the biggest camp in the Academy’s history.

Along with competing in the West Kimberley Shield, the boys participated in a variety of activities as part of a reward for their commitment to school in Term 1.  Such activities included a tabloid sports evening, volunteering at Bran Nue Day (aged care facility), a visit to the crocodile park, dinner at a local Broome restaurant and morning tea with Melissa Price MP, Federal Member for Durack. The boys showed great maturity and leadership in all activities, in particular at the morning tea where seven boys presented to Melissa on what they get up to each day in their Academy.

Note: In 2017, the Karratha Clontarf Academy has its highest ever number of participants with 150 Indigenous boys already signed up with the Academy, 20 of whom are Year 12 students.
