In partnership with the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (AIEF), Sky News and Commonwealth Bank have debuted a new one-hour special documentary titled Changing Our Nation.
Hosted by Fox Sports Presenter, Yvonne Sampson, the documentary follows a group of students enrolled in the AIEF Scholarship Program who travel from some of the country’s most remote towns to the nation’s leading classrooms.
The AIEF Scholarship Program provides Indigenous students with the necessary funding to pursue their education at one of Australia’s leading boarding schools and universities.
The documentary, which features Indigenous students: Injarra Harbour, Amelya and Lilly See Kee, Kirrah Stothers and Aspen Moore, trails the students on their educational voyage, and showcases how the right schooling can help Indigenous youth to become the leaders of tomorrow, inspiring generations to come.
The documentary also features Commonwealth Bank’s Strategic Projects Manager, Mitchell Heritage, who is a former AIEF scholar recipient and an avid supporter of the Foundation.
“The impact that AIEF has had on not only my life but countless others cannot be understated. I was incredibly lucky to have the opportunities that I’ve been given and wouldn’t be where I am today without them,” Mr Heritage said in the documentary.
