Our Spark Grants encourage and support student-led ideas and projects in local primary schools. The grant provides students with ownership of the funding, encouraging students to work together, research their ideas and decide on a project that makes a difference to their school or the wider community. It’s all about empowering the students to come up with a great idea and deliver a project!
The first round in 2018 funded projects at Maldon, Dunolly, Newstead and Harcourt Valley primary schools. Maldon students created a fairy garden and held a whole of school fun day. Newstead PS used their funding for a fete to raise money for robotics equipment. Dunolly PS installed new classrooms bins for recycling, and Harcourt Valley PS held workshops about managing anxiety.
The second round of funding was distributed in June 2020. Watch this space for the idea’s each school spark’s up!
