Jane was up against enormous challenges. Her family split up. They had fled a violent household and had nowhere safe to live. Jane was unable to live with her mother for some time and had lost trust in people. It's hard to imagine dealing with all that and trying to stay in school. With the support of our teachers, counsellors and Principal, Jane felt motivated to stay in school. Jane described Waranara School as a place where she felt safe and understood. It was a place where she could connect with other people and be accepted.
