The Girls Academy program was founded in 2004 by Olympian and champion basketballer Ricky Grace. The Academy helps thousands of at risk aboriginal girls overcome barriers and strives to keep them at the 34 schools in the program of 2017. This year more than 2500 young girls will participate in the Academy. The program is supported by some of our biggest business companies as well as region shire in Bunbury and Broome. SMS business development manager Ian Lewis was fortunate to meet Ricky at a recent event and invited him to catch up again to look at ways that SMS can assist in this great program.
