MyFuture programme

08 Aug 2017

BDSC is part of an incentive with AUT called the MyFuture programme. We work together to help students get the best out of school and pathway into tertiary education. View a video of our student Robyn Edeams, who participated in the July holiday workshop.

MyFuture is a personal and academic development programme developed by AUT that works with South Auckland secondary students, their schools, families and communities.
