BMD continues to support Clontarf Foundation during National Reconciliation Week

BMD has been in partnership with the Clontarf Foundation for over three years, working closely to improve education, discipline, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal men. The foundation’s programs are delivered through a network of academies, established in partnership with local schools. Earlier this week during National Reconciliation Week, a few of the BMD Darwin team attended the Clontarf Academy Super Training Day held at the Palmerston College. BMD Labourer, Sheldon attended the event and caught up with past teachers. He was one of the first to graduate year 12 through the Clontarf Foundation 10 years ago and is now building his career with BMD. Sheldon is a very valued member of the BMD Darwin team, and is a fine example of what positive impacts the Clontarf Academy has on these young men. Just last year, Sheldon was acknowledged by the industry body Civil Contractors Federation, with the award of the Indigenous Trainee of the Year Award. The award is testament to his growth and career progression with BMD.
