Future Moves

The Future Moves program aims to inspire school students and young people from regional and rural areas to attend university. Working across more than 70 partner schools, Future Moves sees approximately 14,000 students each year. Future Moves’ core activities are workshops in schools and events on campus aimed at ensuring that students can act on their aspirations in informed and effective ways, have a greater awareness of the opportunities that arise from pursuing university study and an understanding of how university might be part of their future, while making school studies more relevant.

Good luck to all Year 12 students starting their HSC exams tomorrow!

It may not seem like it now, but it won’t be long until your exams will be a distant memory. So do your best, enjoy every moment, and never forget that no matter what happens from this point onwards, you should never stop learning, exploring, growing and challenging yourself to be your best.

Best wishes,
The Future Moves Team

Koori Knockout, 2018

What a day to be spent in the sun (and wind), and be so fortunate to engage with community at one of the biggest gatherings of Indigenous people in the world.

Charles Sturt University - CSU's Indigenous Students Services stall stood tall and proud in prime positioning at goal posts to the main field, manned by Dubbo local and Indigenous Liaison Officer, Robert Salt. Future Moves and Strong Moves jumped on board the opportunity to attend with one of our newest mentors, Taleise Pickavance, proving to be very popular with her face painting skills. It was a fabulous day of high spirits and lots of conversations with community -young and old, from the Central West and far beyond, about pathways to higher education.

Running into faces from students of our Future Moves partner schools, and even getting to see some of our Strong Moves students represent their teams in a sport that they love, in such a unique event, were certainly up there.

Thanks to all the organisers for putting on such a wonderful annual event ...Made even better when it is held in our very own back yard!
Can a fab day like this even be called work??

What a couple of months with Orange High School, Orange NSW DEC!

Over the past two months Future Moves had the privilege of working with a number of wonderful Orange High School students. The year 9 students had an opportunity to visit Bathurst and Orange campuses for Future Directions days, Year 11 were engaged in an action packed Skill Fix session in preparation for exams, while in-school workshops were delivered to students from year 7-10 over four weeks. To top it off, Strong Moves just wrapped up a four week program with the school.
Also, a massive shout out to those who attended AND helped out our Leaders for the Sky Stories evening at Orange CSU campus. There were many happy painted faces on the night!

Thanks Mr Pearson for getting the kids here, and for wearing your Strong Moves Tee each week. It’s been a lot of fun!

Problem solved!

Last week, Future Moves staff and current university student leaders travelled to Wingham High School to pilot ‘SOLVE’ – the first Future Moves workshop dedicated solely to exciting mathematics and problem solving activities and challenges.

The day saw students from year 10 solve and master a range of activities and challenges led by Charles Sturt University - CSU student leaders, before stepping up to take the lead on running students from year 8 through the activities and solutions.

It was great to see the confidence of the year 10 students grow throughout the day – they should each be very proud of their achievements!

Future Moves would like to thank staff and students from Wingham High School for welcoming us into their school. We look forward to rolling out SOLVE in more of our partner schools next year.
