Learning for Life program

The Learning for Life program works in partnership with families to support their children’s education and increase their chances of success at school. The program supports children’s education from primary to post-school studies, like TAFE or University. Families who meet the criteria and complete the registration process will receive $478 a year for students in Reception to Year 10 and $772 a year for student in Years 11 and 12 to support with the cost of educational expenses, such as uniforms, school supplies and excursions. They will also receive access to a range of programs and offers to support the student’s educational journey.

Learning for Life provides:

  • Support from a dedicated Family Partnership Coordinator
