In 2016, Johnathan sent an uplifting message to the students in Aurukun after leading his side to victory in game one of the State of Origin. His message to the students was “ I just want you to believe in yourselves and keep turning up to school”.
JTBelieve programs will run throughout South East Queensland. Our aim, to provide high school students with opportunities not only aimed to improve their school engagement and academic performance, but also to expand their horizons with a long-term view of their future. The JT Academy aims to make a difference to the way young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students identify within themselves and their goals for the future. From year 7, students can take part in a variety of activities to support their academic and study skills and awareness of further education and career options.
JTBelieve programs are available in South East Queensland only.
