Clontarf Foundation

The Clontarf Foundation has arrived in the Hunter Region and Irrawang High School is thrilled to have the program at our school.

The Clontarf Foundation exists to improve the education, discipline, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and by doing so equips them to participate meaningfully in society.

“We are honoured to be part of the Irrawang High School community and eager to get the program established with the boys. I encourage the parents and families to contact me at school on 49874687 to find out more about the program" said founding Direector John Wade.

There are many aspects to the program, which is essentially designed to encourage young ATSI men to complete their schooling to Year 12. Students will attend morning training twice weekly, participating in a wide variety of sports. There will also be attendance based excursions and employment visits.
