KiP Pitch for Change
We at The School Project are so excited and greatly appreciate being invited to take part in the inaugural KiP Pitch for Change on Sun 13 Nov

3 grass roots charities will pitch & KIP will then roll up their sleeves & participate in 3 hands on volunteering activities.

Each child will then have the opportunity to vote for the organisations they like best.

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.

Welcome to The School Project. Our aim is to provide children displaced through domestic violence with everything they need to continue their schooling and homework. If you'd like to donate please see below the list of items we require. No donation is too small and every donation is very much appreciated.

We do need everything donated to be new, however calculators are an exception.

Please message our page for your closest drop off location, or alternately, shop online and have your donation send directly to our warehouse at

If you'd prefer to donate financially and have us buy the items on your behalf, our bank details are below. We are a registered 100% not for profit charity, meaning were staffed solely by volunteers and every donation over $2 is tax deductible.
