The Community Bank Clifton Hill – North Fitzroy has provided an exciting traineeship opportunity for a young Aboriginal person by funding a traineeship thanks to a generous donation to AFL SportsReady’s Ready Foundation.

The Ready Foundation was established by AFL SportsReady and aims to assist in relieving poverty, suffering, distress or misfortune experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people and other disadvantaged youth.

As part of the partnership between the Community Bank on Queens Parade, Clifton Hill and AFL SportsReady, proud Aboriginal woman, Tayah Quayle, has been lucky enough to be offered the traineeship and will be undertaking a Certificate IV in Sport Development and working as an Indigenous Support Officer at Thornbury Primary School in Melbourne’s North. Tayah commenced her traineeship at the school last week.

“In my role I help disengaged Indigenous kids re-connect with their classes, their culture and themselves through one-on-one time and through their love of sports,” said Tayah.

I feel really grateful to be given the opportunity to work at this amazing school and it’s all thanks to this traineeship opportunity,” she added.

We wish Tayah all the success in her traineeship and thank the Community Bank Clifton Hill – North Fitzroy for their generous donation and for helping to create a better future for young Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people in their community.


To help us serve those in our community who need it most, you can donate to the Ready Foundation here.
