Caltex Executive General Manager of Supply Adam Ritchie says Caltex has an important role to play in making a meaningful difference to the lives of indigenous Australians.
“This is the sixth year we’ve partnered with Clontarf and we’re proud to continue our support of the foundation and the life-changing work they do,” he said.
“Caltex’s renewed partnership with Clontarf coincides with the launch of our refreshed Indigenous Employment Strategy, which will see us focus on building long-term capability by establishing a pipeline of talented indigenous employees.”
Clontarf Foundation CEO Gerard Neesham says having the continued support of Caltex was essential in helping indigenous students complete their schooling while opening the door for potential employment opportunities.
“With 4,500 boys in the program this year, our continued partnership with Caltex will enable us to keep supporting and mentoring students from our 70 academies around the country,” he said.
In a symbolic gesture to highlight the partnership as well as paying tribute to the oldest continuous culture in the world, TeamVortex last week revealed new indigenous livery raced under by motorsport icon Craig Lowndes on the weekend. Designed by Darwin Clontarf student Daniel Thomson, the work represents where he and his family go fishing for barramundi, including how they catch and cook the fish.
