A computer and internet access at home is an essential part of school life (especially when school and home collide – hello, lockdown!). Not to mention all the extra exercise books, paper, pens and colouring pencils that are now taking up residence on those dining tables being used as school desks!
Of course, we know not every child is fortunate enough to have all of these resources. And without them, kids are faced not only with significant academic challenges but also with issues such as social isolation that can prevent them from reaching their full potential. Unfortunately, these challenges and risks are often increased in remote and rural areas where kids may not have access to everything they need for online learning.
The Variety We Learn Grant is here to help bridge the gap.
Open to families with children aged 4 – 18 throughout NSW and the ACT, We Learn comprises two grants – Educational Technology and Educational Supplies.
This grant is now closed.
Together, we can ensure that all kids – no matter where they live, no matter how rural or remote – can access the educational technology and supplies they need to learn and achieve their very best.
