Have we made an impact yet?

The empirical data is yet to be crunched, but in reviewing interviews with students as young as 9 to those about to transition to post school options, it seems that (anacdotely at least) the Compass program has made a positive impact across our target schools.

Our trusty SCA Tutor Jack McGrath conducted video interviews with students, teachers, University student volunteers and University staff at a number of Compass schools on the last week of the school term. The filming will result in a short video montage to be premiered at the Compass Showcase 2011 on 30th October 2010 and will be available to view on the Compass website in early November.
