Griffith’s Uni-Reach and Extended Uni-Reach programs encourage and support the higher education aspirations of students at partner schools in the Brisbane, Logan, Gold Coast and northern NSW regions, where historically there has been a limited transition into university study.
Scripted and performed by Griffith students, Uni-Drama is an in-school educational drama presentation focussed on overcoming barriers to education. It raises students' awareness of career decisions and stimulates thinking and conversation around careers by introducing them to 'real life' scenarios and role modelling.
Students can access our Uni-Reach drama clips tackling key issues students face as they progress through high school. These film clips are excerpts from a live Uni-Drama performance delivered in-school to Year 8 students in partner high schools and are designed to be viewed with a facilitator, and used as a discussion tool for students to reflect on the issues raised.
