Having to learn his times tables in high school was just one of many hurdles Paul Rundle put his mind to and overcame during his time in the Clontarf programme.

Growing up in a remote community, Paul was part of the first wave of students to attend the Goldfields Academy in 2002.  Paul decided that with the support of the Clontarf Foundation he could succeed if he put his mind to it; earning his spot in the top special learning class and eventually going on to complete his TEE.

“To be part of the programme is a privilege, like a school scholarship programme.  We felt lucky and honoured to be part of it,” Paul said.

Paul undertook a three year traineeship as a linesman with Western Power, Transfield Services, working all over Perth helping to build school classrooms as part of the Building the Education Revolution.

Paul is currently residing in Kalgoorlie working full time as a trades assistant at Rock Drill Services Australia.  He has ambitions to pursue a boxing career, one of his passions.
