On Thursday 21st June, Skytrans staff travelled to Kowanyama to award school students as part of the Skytrans Take Off Program. The program recognises students who have achieved outstanding attendance levels throughout the semester, by rewarding them with certificates and the much anticipated Skytrans showbags.
This semester the attendance level was set high at 95%, by acting deputy principal of Kowanyama State School, Tal Mitchell, yet we still had an impressive 59 students reach the target.
The students enjoyed the fun and healthy contents of the showbags, including fresh fruit and new toothbrushes, as they took a private tour of the aircraft. In addition, students who reached 100% attendance will go in the draw to win return airfares for them and a family member to travel to Cairns!
“It’s great to see such a high number of students reach the target, especially as it was set higher than in previous years.” said Chelly Hewson, Skytrans Community Development Coordinator. “It’s so satisfying to know that our initiative is making a difference in the community and providing an added incentive for the kids to get to school and get engaged”
