Potential future Rugby League stars had their chance to shine this week with the Mount Austin Clontarf Academy putting Year 9 and 10 First Nations students from southern New South Wales through their paces at their Regional Rugby League Day in Wagga Wagga.
Teams from Wagga Wagga, Tumut, and Albury Clontarf Academies took to the field for a day of fun, demonstrating teamwork, discipline, and building connections with Clontarf peers.
The Clontarf Foundation supports the education, training, and employment of First Nations youth in communities along the Inland Rail alignment.
ARTC Inland Rail’s investment through the Inland Rail Skills Academy is supporting 14 Clontarf Academies along the rail corridor in Queensland and New South Wales.
This funding is helping to boost school retention, develop leadership skills, and create pathways to employment through training opportunities for First Nations regional youth.
