My target 2000 Baskets
I'm fundraising for The BUSY Schools
I am vertically challenged and not particularly skilled at basketball. But I am passionate about supporting disengaged students to complete their education and get a head start into employment.
The BUSY Schools is an independent Queensland Special Assistance School supporting the social, educational and employment outcomes of young people with a focus on those students who are at risk and disengaged from the traditional education model.
The BUSY Schools represent an alternative to mainstream schooling and often a last chance for students to reengage in secondary education. Many of these young people have experienced bullying or have mental health challenges, problems at home or a variety of reasons that have made attending traditional school difficult.
The school offers a unique program combining academic studies, vocational training and personal development to provide a supportive, inclusive learning environment that combines learning, training, practical experience and recreational activities with a focus on academic and employment outcomes.
So, I'm hitting the court to show my support for these students. My aim is to supplement my lack of skill with a high quality team who will help me shoot hoops and sink baskets during the month of June. I've set a target for how many baskets I will sink and how much I will fundraise for The BUSY Schools who are doing an amazing job supporting young people to re-engage with their education.
