The School Project helps a 10 year old boy with Bike Education

The School Project helps a 10 year old boy with Bike Education

Yesterday the wonderful Nadine from Launch Housing got in contact with us to advise there was a young 10 year old boy in their care that could not participate in Bike Education at his school. Today I delivered her a new Bike and Helmet.

Our goal at The School Project is to help by assisting in any way possible to ensure that the children can continue their education after being displaced.

Experiencing Homelessness sadly comes in so many ways and the children are just innocent victims.

When Nadine contacted us we made the decision to get this young boy a new bike and helmet so he could continue his education and learn the responsibilities of safe riding. This is such an important initiative to keep our kids safe on the roads. Being able to participate is not only important for his education but also to maintain his consistent inclusion in activities that all the other kids take for granted.

It is because of our amazing supporters that donate to us that allow us to have the privilege of helping such children.

So to all you that have supported us through donations, volunteering and liking The School Project Facebook Page, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You can take pride in yourself that your support and donations are making real changes for little kids.

At The School Project we have several initiatives including:

  • Educating Kids on Homelessness and the Community
  • Providing Brand New Back Packs stocked with every school essential needed to continue their education
  • Providing Swimming Packs so children can participate in School Swimming Programs
  • Providing Camp Packs so children can participate in School Camps
  • Providing Bikes and Helmets so children can participate in Bike Education

Once again thank you so much for your support and please continue to support us and spread the word, like our pages and get involved so that we can continue to help these amazing children.

Our First Packing Day

Our First Packing Day

With a massive car load of your very generous donations we headed off to Ballarat yesterday for our first School Project packing day!

 

The amazing and hard working students from Ballarat Grammar helped us put together over 30 school backpacks which will be distributed to kids who have been displaced by domestic violence.

The students all worked together to ensure each backpack has all the essential items to help students complete school work and homework, including a lunch box and drink bottle for each pack. Three different types of backpacks were made. Kinder to lower primary, upper primary and high school.

A huge thank you to the staff and students from Ballarat Grammar, and to every single one of you who has donated.

If you would like your school to help out at our next packing day, please send us a message via the page.
