Compass-Find Your Way to Higher Education, a University of Sydney program, aims to encourage primary and secondary students from low-socieconomic backgrounds to participate in higher education.  The key goal of the project is to build academic attainment and aspiration for students and to provide them with a greater awareness of higher education opportunities.


Sydney University supports Athelstane by providing learning opportunities for students and professional learning for teachers.

The Compass program has seen our students involved in:

  • University Taster Days
  • Stop Motion Animation
  • Film Production
  • Visits to the various Museums at Sydney University
  • Experience performances at the Seymour Centre
  • Occupational Therapy intervention program
  • Word Up (Multilit) program

We are very fortunate to have this continued association with Sydney University.
