The Fast Forward Program is a partnership between the University of Western Sydney and schools in Greater Western Sydney. The program aims to help students to see the value of continuing their education through to Year 12 and beyond.
The Fast Forward Program encourages students to strive for their personal best and to see tertiary study as a realistic and viable post-school option. During the four-year program students begin to understand the concept of lifelong learning and the benefits of continued education and training has on the success of their career.
The University of Western Sydney held an Awards Night on Thursday 19th of March at the Parramatta Campus to congratulate the Year 9 students who have been selected by their school to participate in the UWS Fast Forward Program.
The staff at St Andrews College believe that the UWS Fast Forward Program is a great opportunity for our students. Mr Peter Bowd, Year 9 Leader of Learning and Ms Therese May, Careers Adviser and Fast Forward Co-ordinator attended the Awards Night and wish the students well in their journey as they plan for a successful future. Mr Bowd and Ms May would like to extend a big thank you to those students and their families who attended the Awards Night.
