We have had an established, strong partnership with Monash University and Latrobe Community Health since 2011, as we value what our community can offer our students.  As a result of this partnership we were successful in receiving a $25,000 NAB Bank Seed Grant towards the purchase of IPADS in 2010, and a $30,000 NAB bank Impact Grant to create a Community Garden in 2013  

 This award-winning partnership

  • is based on improving student language acquisition to improve student literacy
  • aims to build upon and improve existing partnerships
  • recognises that effective learning extends beyond the relationship between a classroom teacher and the student.  

The uniqueness of this partnership is that it involves two very different organisations that each contribute to improving literary learning outcomes of our junior children.  The program is triangulated by the school’s Literacy Leader.
