DONNING modified business suits, a bevy of Corrs lawyers and staff took to the football field in an effort to boost awareness of a student support program, backed by the firm.
The 'Suit-up-Footy' day was organised to raise awareness about Teach for Australia, a new program that helps students in Australian schools while providing leadership and career development for outstanding graduates.
Corrs provides Teach for Australia with pro bono legal and other support, including advising it on its successful tender to coordinate the national roll out of the 'New Pathway into Teaching' program.
The firm also assisted the group to document their partnering agreements with the “Teach for All” global network, the successful model which Teach for Australia is working to adapt to the Australian education environment. Corrs CEO, John Denton, is also a director of Teach for Australia.
The “Suit-Up Footy” day saw a range of Teach for Australia supporters compete for the coveted Blue Dot Trophy, eventually taken home by the Corrs team.
Corrs Partner Craig Milner said: "One of the reasons Corrs participates in this program is that it provides a great way for us to get involved in Australian education and support an initiative that will not only have a positive impact on students, but also give talented graduates the opportunity to acquire valuable new leadership skills.
