Four students from the Newcastle Knights’ 100% Knights program were invited to attend the NRL All Stars Indigenous Youth Summit in Brisbane last week.
Emily Wilson, Zac McGuiness, Will Taylor and Jess Smith were chosen to attend the Summit by their school principals as a reward for their hard work and achievements during the school year.
During the Summit the students spent four days at the University of Queensland where they participated in an educational, cultural and aspirational experience.
They also got the chance to attend the fourth annual All Stars match at Suncorp Stadium.
The 100% Knights program has been running for more than two years at seven high schools in the upper Hunter Valley.
Although the program will officially end in June, there are a number of exciting initiatives being put in place.
