GIRLS Academies have been officially opened at Dubbo College South, Dubbo College Delroy and Dubbo College Senior.

More than 175 were on hand for the opening ceremony for the colleges, run by charitable organisation Role Models and Leaders Australia (RMLA), in conjunction with Dubbo College.

RMLA says NSW has been a major focus for expansion, with more than 800 now enrolled in NSW Girls Academies. Dubbo will be the largest centre for the Girls Academy in NSW, with about 225 girls enrolled over the three Dubbo College campuses.

The initiative has won praise.

“Dubbo College is very excited to be partnering with Girls Academy and looking forward to supporting our girls to be the leaders in their community,” executive principal Stacey Exner said.

“Our aim is to improve attendance, advance personal achievement, support girls to complete their HSC and facilitate post-school options, so that our girls can be the best version of themselves.”
