Benefits of Compass

The Compass Award fosters a positive attitude to learning whilst completing curriculum requirements.

Along the way participants develop a range of positive skills and attributes that enhance their opportunities. The program is tailored to each individual to meet their unique goals and needs and is a non-competitive framework. Through the program participants have the opportunity to try fun activities and learn new skills, while developing their initiative and commitment.
