Dream en­counter

Canning Times - - NEWS -

A Sevenoaks Se­nior Col­lege stu­dent is get­ting the chance to fol­low her dreams and ex­pe­ri­ence life at one of the na­tion’s top uni­ver­si­ties.

A SEVENOAKS Se­nior Col­lege stu­dent will have help chas­ing her dreams, thanks to sup­port from the Gra­ham Polly Farmer Foun­da­tion.

Re­bekah De­laney is one of 16 stu­dents across the coun­try se­lected for the Fol­low The Dream pro­gram at the Univer­sity of Syd­ney.

The teenager will par­tic­i­pate in the Bunga Barrabugu Sum­mer Pro­gram, which en­ables Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der high school stu­dents to ex­pe­ri­ence univer­sity life.

Miss De­laney said she was really ex­cited when she dis­cov­ered she had been ac­cepted into the pro­gram as she plans to study at the univer­sity.

“I will be mov­ing to Syd­ney at the end of Year 12 and I wish to en­rol there at the Univer­sity of Syd­ney,” she said.

“This pro­gram will be a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for me to gain first-hand in­for­ma­tion about the cour­ses, meet staff and cur­rent stu­dents, and get a feel for univer­sity life.”

Stu­dents can choose to get in­volved in a va­ri­ety of learn­ing streams, in­clud­ing ar­chi­tec­ture, visual arts, ed­u­ca­tion, so­cial work, en­gi­neer­ing and medicine.
