In addition to hands-on activities, students will meet current Indigenous university students and are informed of university entry pathways and the School of Indigenous Studies' Outreach Program. Students also receive lunch and a free t-shirt.
The first Discovery Day was held in 2000 with 21 students from five schools. In 2020, we had over 110 students attend from the Follow the Dream Program, Catholic Education, Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia (AISWA) and public schools attend over the three-day program.
The program is free for participating schools. Places are limited to 60 students per day and schools are limited in the number of students they may bring due to venue capacities.
