Carnival time at Nova Peris Girls Academy

Kia Motors Australia has come to the aid of dual-Olympian Nova Peris, providing a mobility solution to a new Indigenous program which allows girls from remote communities to participate in a unique education experience.

The Darwin-Based Nova Peris Girls Academy (NPGA) is funded jointly by the Commonwealth, corporate Australia and Catholic Education and has been operating out of the St John's College campus for the past 18 months.Aboriginal girls from Queensland's Western Cape, the Northern Territory and the Kimberleys are encouraged to apply for the 80 places available in the junior and senior programs. Central to the Academy's success is a focus on behaviour, attendance and being able to retain the girls in the program.
