Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy & Fertilisers (WesCEF), which includes CSBP and Kleenheat Gas, re-confirmed its commitment to the Clontarf Foundation this month signing off on another three year partnership.
The invaluable partnership will support the provision of student places at the Kwinana-based Gilmore Clontarf Academy in particular, and other locations as agreed.
WesCEF Chief Operating Officer, Ian Hansen said the organisation was thrilled to be able to continue to sponsor the Foundation, which it had supported in varying capacities since 2005.
“We're really proud of the strong relationship we've been able to build with Clontarf, and in particular with the students and staff at the Gilmore Clontarf Academy,” he said.
"We're committed to enhancing relationships with and providing important capacity building, development and employment opportunities to Aboriginal people from our local community where possible, so it's fantastic to be able to partner with an organisation that is focused on similar outcomes."
Clontarf Foundation General Manager - Partnerships and Communications, Shane Kiely said Clontarf were pleased that WesCEF had decided to extend their partnership.
“We’re about to embark on a significant period of growth over the next three years, so we’re extremely fortunate that WesCEF has renewed their partnership, allowing us to focus on doubling our operations across the country,” he said.
“Having long term partnerships with organisations such as WesCEF not only assists us in maintaining our operations, but also provides opportunities for our boys to engage with WesCEF staff and have access to local employment opportunities.”
As part of the partnership, WesCEF also participates in Clontarf events such as the annual Clontarf Foundation Employment Forum; hosts workplace tours for Clontarf students; and provides development opportunities towards employment including participation in work experience and school based traineeships.
