The CJSC Board offers grants to help CJ students pay for driving lessons and get their driver’s licence. One successful recipient of the Driving Grant in 2018 was Daniel Gayton. Daniel, who completed his year 12 studies at CJ last year, achieved his goal of getting his driver’s licence before the end of the school year. Daniel commented that, “The Keys to Drive course, along with the Driver’s Grant, were incredibly helpful in enabling me to get my driver’s licence. Lessons can be expensive, and without the generous help of Cyril Jackson Senior Campus, there’s a strong chance I still wouldn’t be in possession of my licence. Now that I am, it has made things much easier, and opened up a whole new avenue of independence for me.”
