Clontarf Foundation

Nathan spoke about the other Clontarf locations and their reach to over 4000 students in 70 schools.

Their day-to-day work is about being strong role models, helping students with academic success, rugby league training and partnering with employers to assist students.

Harristown Clontarf belongs to everyone and they encourage all students to participate in activities they run.  Nathan introduced himself and the staff: Cameron Moodie (graduated 2004) and Daniel Blades (graduated 2002)
