'We currently deliver our V Swans Kicking Goals and Shooting Goals programs, who are also supported by BHP, at Hedland Senior High School and have done so for over the last decade, these programs have achieved amazing outcomes for our students, Hedland Senior High School and the wider Hedland community. With the addition of our new V Swans REACH program we will now be able to provide support to those female students that may be currently falling through the gaps with no direct support’.
‘BHP have supported V Swans for over the last decade, and we are extremely fortunate to have their support as major partner for our new program’.
We would like to thank BHP along with a number of other local organisations who have supported our process on securing funding to launch our V Swans REACH Program in 2020.
