A GROUP of inspiring visitors came to Calare Public School on Thursday.

Indigenous Police Recruiting Our Way (IPROWD) students and police officers delivered motivational speeches and set fitness challenges for Aboriginal students interested in the police force.

Year four student Jahkye West said the visit reaffirmed his aspirations to become a police officer.

“I want to be a police officer because you get to catch people who do bad things,” Jahkye said.

IPROWD coordinator Peter Gibbs said he encouraged students to join the program and aim high.

“It’s about gaining qualifications and confidence,” Mr Gibbs said.

IPROWD is a partnership between TAFE and NSW police to assist Aboriginal people to gain entry into the NSW police academy.
