NAB Impact Grant
In 2011 we were awarded a NAB Seed grant of $25000 for the positive partnership work our school has established with Monash University Gippsland and Latrobe Community Health Services, to strengthen the oral language skills of our junior children. The grant enabled us to purchase 20 iPads and technical support to provide an another resource for all partnership members to use to promote language development.
In 2013 we were successful in obtaining a $30000 NAB impact grant which recognised our strong partnership work and the positive progress our children were making due to the one to one work with Monash students and our children as well as the fabulous input from LCH clients to develop oral language through shared projects. We are now working towards creating a Community Garden for our school community, partnership members and local community members to utilise and enjoy. The garden will be designed and created by the community to add another dimension to learning focussing on planting, harvesting and cooking produce. The NAB Impact Grant will enable this dream project to be made a reality!
