Wilson Security supporting Boys Learning Centre
A commitment to improving education opportunities for Indigenous Australians has connected leading security company Wilson Security with NRL Cowboys House and a new naming rights partnership with the Boys Campus Learning Centre.
With branches across Australia and New Zealand, Wilson Security have joined the NRL Cowboys House family to boost the Learning Centre’s important work in providing academic support and tutoring for 54 boys who call the unique boarding facility home during the school term.
Most students first arrive at the House between two and five years behind their mainstream urban peers in literacy and numeracy, and each student has an education and personal development plan in place to guide their progress and milestones.
The Learning Centre is the hub for assigned homework and additional tutoring and is equipped to inspire learning, with computer stations, creative spaces and motivational messages to encourage the Year 7-12 students to achieve their best.
The Wilson Security team were on site to tour the Boys Campus ahead of the announcement.
“Wilson Security is very honoured to sign this long-term partnership with NRL Cowboys House, as part of our commitment with the Indigenous communities within North Queensland and as support to the local region of Townsville,” Wilson Security Chief Operating Officer Chris Goodall said.
“Key to Wilson Security’s success is our commitment to supporting our communities, building better relationships and developing a greater respect and understanding for local culture.
“Within our reconciliation action plan, we are committed to supporting our Indigenous communities through education and creating opportunities for employment. We believe that all Australians should have the same opportunities to get the best education possible.
“The work that NRL Cowboys House is doing to support Indigenous youth in their high school years is so important in building foundations for the future. We are proud to support them in improving the lives of these young Indigenous Australians to be the best they can possibly be!”
Cowboys Community Foundation Director Jeff Reibel thanked the new Boys Campus Learning Centre partners for their support.
“We’re incredibly proud of our NRL Cowboys House team and our students, families and communities, and of what we’ve achieved here in just three years towards removing geography as a barrier to education,” Mr Reibel said.
“We welcome Wilson Security and their proactivity in supporting our region and our cause and look forward to working together to develop academic capability and create career pathways for our students, on their way to becoming economic contributors in our communities.”
