Broome Boys Commit to Part-Time Employment

Cricket is a major part of the Clontarf programme during the summer months and one of the biggest events on the calendar is the Imparja Cup held annually in Alice Springs.

To celebrate this encouraging outcome, the academy invited 10 students who had recently gained part-time employment as well as members of the school teaching staff to the academy’s inaugural ‘Workers Lunch’.

The lunch provided an opportunity to celebrate the boys’ achievements and to share as a group their experiences in employment so far.

The boys provided the attending school staff with a tour of the academy room and showcased their individual ‘Work-Ready Documents’ – important folios which contain each student’s resume, birth certificate, examples of work and any qualifications they’ve achieved.

Kimberley Clontarf Employment Officer Xavier Ennis said he expects many more boys from the academy to join the lunch as they build their work-ready skills and start applying for jobs.

“We’ve had a big focus on part-time employment in the Kimberley in the last few years and the boys in Broome have wholeheartedly embraced it,” Xavier said.

“Our senior men are leading the way and showing the younger boys the benefits of having a job, gaining an income and building on their skillsets.”
