Social Enterprise Program…

…not just from inside the classroom.

Our Year 6 students recently took a trip into Melbourne CBD to visit The Living Room which is one of the charities our Social Enterprise Program supports. Our Year 6 students heard about how The Living Room supports people experiencing homelessness, by providing meals, medical care, hygiene care and counselling. Our students then prepared and cooked pumpkin soup and muffins to be provided to The Living Room clients, along with protein drinks and bars we donated. We also presented The Living Room with a cheque for $2,000, which we have raised through our Social Enterprise café and school events. This excursion was such an amazing opportunity for our students to get an insight into how these kinds of charities work from the inside and see how their support helps those in need. Thank you to our school community for supporting our Social Enterprise Program.

Our brand new Discovery Centre, which houses our Visual Arts Room, STEM Room and new state of the art Library, is complete and looks amazing! Our students (and staff) are enjoying being in this new space.
