Dragons and UOW 'Energise' local students

The University of Wollongong and St George Illawarra Dragons have joined forces to develop the Energise program for Year 11 students.

Now in its second year, Energise is focused on inspiring students to set long-term education and career goals, discover pathways to achieve them, develop strong study skills, build resilience, overcome challenges and become confident leaders.
