The aim of the program is to help children develop self-efficiency and a heightened sense of confidence. Each child in the program receives a passport to record their hours of learning which is then stamped by registered organisations. These organisations are known as ‘learning destinations’, hence filling up a passport.
Once the child has reached 30 hours of learning, students are invited to attend a graduation ceremony where they celebrate their achievements and are able to dress in the graduate attire.
The program, which was launched in 2016 has grown from 300 students in its first year to over 1000 students participating in 2017 throughout the Hunter, Newcastle and Central Coast Regions.
