Three of our Year 10 jarjums have been selected to attend the The Air Force Indigenous Youth Program (IYP) which provides young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants with exposure to various skills, trades, and life-style experiences. The jarjums will stay on base with other Indigenous jarjums and experience life in The Royal Australian Airforce. Congratulations Jinali, Janaya, and Tiana! Your HYIS family is so proud of your achievements and wish you well in what is going to be an exciting time ahead.
