Plumpton High Babies: The Girls Most Likely
The Girls Most Likely
Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  FOXTEL Bio  |  May 3, 2010

In Sydney's outer western suburbs is a school that looks like any other. But at Plumpton High, there is something quite unique. It's a young mothers program that helps teenage mothers stay at school. There is no program like it anywhere in the world. There are schools that cater for pregnant girls or young mothers, but nowhere that integrates them into the general student population like Plumpton does. The idea, pioneered by principal Glen Sargeant, was to stop pregnant girls being forced out of school and onto welfare.
