Join the Movement to Re-engage Youth

At The BUSY School, our mission is to address a critical issue affecting our country: 20% of senior school students are currently disengaged or at risk of disengagement from mainstream education. That’s one in five young people! We exist to close the disengagement gap by providing alternative learning to students in Years 11 and 12.

The BUSY School envisions more young people completing school, entering meaningful employment, and exposing communities to positive change. Our purpose is to understand the needs of our students, our people, and our community, building positive, respectful, and productive relationships to maximise engagement, enhance educational achievement, and open the world of career opportunities.

Our dedicated team of teachers, youth workers, employment pathways officers, and teachers’ aides collaboratively work to provide comprehensive support, enabling students not only to cope but to thrive. We go beyond conventional services typically seen in special assistance schools by identifying and removing barriers to attendance and enjoyment of learning, and placing a focus on employment pathways.

Our program prioritises a comprehensive approach to student development, ensuring each participant completes a Senior Education and Training (SET) Plan and co-develops an Individual Learning Plan. We seamlessly integrate academic subjects, Vocational Education and Training (VET), and professional and personal development initiatives.

Former student Tyla Stanton’s journey exemplifies the success stories emerging from The BUSY School’s commitment to transformative education. Tyla is living up to his name and is now an apprentice tiler and working in construction, He discovered his passion during a pivotal work experience opportunity while attending our school, started a school-based apprenticeship before leaving to complete his apprenticeship. Or Ninah who, after struggling at her previous school, is now pursuing her dream to become a sound engineer. The BUSY School understand each student has different skills, aspirations and needs and we personalise our approach to ensure they are supported to realise their goals.

Our goal is for 100% of students to be employed or bound for further studies by graduation!

The BUSY School program depends on the generous support of individuals and corporations. By sharing our mission, you contribute to a movement that empowers young minds to thrive, graduate, and embark on successful career journeys. Help us raise awareness and build a future where every student can succeed.
