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.

Everything we do here at the Irrawang Clontarf Academy is guided by Clontarf’s 6 focus Pillars in the areas of - EDUCATION, WELL-BEING, LEADERSHIP, SPORT, PARTNERS & EMPLOYMENT.

So, each school term plan consists of activities and opportunities that cover all areas underpinning our Foundation Pillars of which have been a major influence in the overall plan. As a result, a solid platform has been laid and leads to our continued success and growth over the past 21 years, from the first academy at Clontarf in Perth. There are now 131 Clontarf academies nationwide, which is reflected in our motto “From little things big things grow”.

We strive to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander boys to get them to school, keep them at school, get them through school to graduation in Year 12 and then into meaningful employment.

At Irrawang Clontarf our staff want the best possible outcomes for all our boys and aim to work within a whole of school framework to assist in achieving these goals to ensure they leave school with good life skills and as work ready and prepared as possible to actively participate not only in their own communities but in society in general.

At Clontarf we have an open-door policy for parents/carers to drop in for a yarn and a cuppa to get to know us and to get a better insight into what we can do to assist their boys here at Irrawang High School.
