Our Outcomes

We measure our success through our data, which consistently shows outstanding outcomes for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women taking part.

WHAT ARE THE KEY MEASURES?

Completion of Year 12
Year 12 completion rate of 91 per cent in 2019

In 2019, 91 per cent of our senior Stars completed Year 12. This is an outstanding outcome, given that the national rate of Year 12 completion for Indigenous Australians was as low as 65.3 per cent in 2016 (Closing the Gap Report 2018).

SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
Attendance Rate of 84 per cent in 2019

In 2019, Stars students attended school at a significantly higher rate than Indigenous students not taking part in the program.

Across our partner schools, our young women achieved an average attendance rate of 84 per cent, as compared to an average Indigenous attendance rate of just 73 per cent in the same schools.

In many of our partner schools, the average attendance rate of Stars students is higher than ‘whole school’ average attendance.

“My Stars Mentors understood the issues in my life, and I felt like I could talk to them. I was the first person in my family to complete Year 12, and I can see around me that the hands-on support Stars provides is helping more and more local Aboriginal girls finish Year 12.”
