Amy teaches at the Cunnamulla State School

When Amy headed to uni in Brisbane with a grant from our foundation in Cunnamulla she had no idea that she’d be returning to teach at the local school and help run that same CEF committee. But, four years on, that’s exactly what she’s doing, and loving it.

As a member of the Cunnamulla CEF she is now helping to raise funds and encourage today’s school-leavers to follow in her footsteps. Amy said the CEF grant helped her fund the cost of travel back to Cunnamulla (a 9 hour drive each way) for her final placement and internship.

“The nine hour drive each way from Brisbane was not just long, but expensive… The grant helped me cover the huge cost of fuel,” Amy said.

And, being able to come here to do that final prac helped me get the job when I graduated – so it’s really made a difference.
