A MINDARIE student has picked up skills to follow his dreams through a program helping Aboriginal students pursue tertiary education places.

Tyron Hindmarch, who attends Mindarie Senior College, is a member of the Graham Polly Farmer Foundation (GPFF) Follow the Dream Mt Lawley outreach program.

He recently received an award for being the highest achieving Year 11 ATAR student in the program last year.

“Tyron is not only an outstanding sportsman and leader, but he has also performed extremely well in all his ATAR subjects,” program co-ordinator Tina Purdew-Deegan said.

“He attained the highest Year 11 subject results in our program in 2017.

“Follow the Dream works at helping students not only academically but also culturally, which Tyron has participated and taken advantage of through extra-curricular opportunities.”

Tyron said the program helped students reach their full ability through the use of free tutors and university open days, and he learnt how to access tutors which boosted his results.

He also attended camps and university open days.
