  • As a major stakeholder within the Christmas Island community, we are particularly passionate about improving and supporting education, across a broad range of age and experiences. PRL Group has built a close relationship with Christmas Island District High School (CIDHS), through which we have become a leading benefactor and proud sponsor of the school’s annual academic achievement and bursary awards.

    PRL Group also hosts students within its work experience program where students are given the opportunity to become part of the workforce within their chosen areas, gaining practical knowledge and skills.

    With our support and that of the wider community, these students will begin the next stage of their lives with the confidence and guidance to go far. We are currently supporting the CIDHS in the development of an Alumni Association.
