During Terms 2 and 3, Year 11 Casuarina Academy (Darwin, NT) member Lloyd Johnston has been developing his mentoring skills through work experience with Moulden Primary Academy (Darwin, NT).
Every Friday, Lloyd helps prepare lunch for the academy boys and participates in table tennis competitions. The young Clontarf men have relished the chance to test their budding skills against one of Casuarina’s finest. He’s even proven to be handy fisherman, showing the boys how to cast a line and hook a barra.
Lloyd also joined the academy’s Year 5 boys on their epic Big Day Out earlier this term. The young men witnessed first hand how senior Clontarf members conduct themselves during an external activity.
Moulden Primary Academy Operations Officer Peter Andrews said that through his work experience, Lloyd was putting all the lessons he had learnt in the academy into practice.
“As a young Aboriginal man, Lloyd is a great role model for these primary school boys as they develop into young men,” Peter said.
“He’s been super supportive of the staff and is a real asset to the team. He’d make an exceptional Clontarf worker in the future.”
Well done, Lloyd. Keep up the great work and finish off the year strong!
