Last week, over three days, Toni and our HPE students did a great job leading the I Belong program.

Building on RMIT’s Schools Network Access Program (SNAP) partnerships, I Belong gives selected SNAP secondary students the opportunity to discover what life as a university student is all about.

I Belong programs are funded by the Australian Government and RMIT, and are designed to increase students’ understanding of, and aspiration for, tertiary education — whether at RMIT or elsewhere.

I Belong programs enable students to explore a university campus, learn about different career and study options, and develop skills to help them transition to tertiary study.

The school kids took part in Ultimate Frisbee and other challenges as well as lab-based activities such as reaction board, vertec and agility tests.

In the voices of the secondary school students and staff:
