Talent Today Talent Tomorrow
Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) has invested in 30 local students, supporting their educational pathways through the Talent Today Talent Tomorrow Bursary and Recognition program.
Open to Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Australian South Sea Islander students, the program acknowledges not only the academic achievements of secondary students, but also their participation, attitude and attendance towards their schooling.
Indigenous Affairs Advisor Lee-Ann Dudley said the program was designed to support the students learning journey even further.
“Talent Today Talent Tomorrow has been a part of our Indigenous Affairs strategy since 2013,” Ms Dudley said.
“Since then GPC has provided over $91,000 in financial assistance to Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Australian South Sea Islander students.
“We are so proud to be able to support our students in this way, being able to recognise their efforts, and encourage them to continue furthering their education is very important to us.”
People, Community and Sustainability General Manger Rowen Winsor said she was delighted to see the 30 students receive their awards, an increase of seven from the previous year.
“The Talent Today Talent Tomorrow Bursary and Recognition awards ceremony is always such a great afternoon of celebration,” Ms Winsor said.
“We not only recognise the students, but also thank the parents, guardians and family members for their time and commitment into their child’s education.”
As the gateway to Australian jobs, trade and prosperity; GPC is proud to support the educational journeys of local students, investing in the leaders of tomorrow.
