Catch Up With Gemma

The June Canavan Foundation board members were thrilled to catch up with Gemma Sisa, founder of the School of St Jude, during her recent trip to the Sunshine Coast. Gemma gave us an update on the school’s tertiary scholarship program, and we  had the pleasure of meeting Winnie, one of the most recent year 12 graduates. Winnie , currently undertaking her community service year at St Jude, generously shared with us her life and educational challenges, as well as her achievements and  her pride at being granted a scholarship to study aeronautical engineering in the USA. We wish Winnie well in this daunting but exciting adventure, and look forward to hearing more about the students who have been able to undertake tertiary studies thanks to the amazing work of Gemma and the School of St Jude.
