December 2021 basis.point Bulletin

Giving children roots to grow and wings to fly through education.

Education is one of the key foundation stones for a healthy, well balanced and rewarding life.  And in another difficult year, access to education has been a vital lifeline for so many vulnerable young people and their families.  

We would like to thank everyone who supported us.  We thank the many friends of Gavin Nangle, who generously donated to his gallant effort for a second time, to run the Boston Marathon on our behalf.  We thank everyone who participated in or donated to, the first ever RBC Race for the Kids and similarly those who participated in our Golf Event.

Our gratitude as ever to our Patrons and Supporters.  Thanks to your ongoing support our educational partners have provided a safe inspirational refuge from COVID-19.  They have brought joy to thousands of marginalised families through meaningful educational activities and have raised the educational aspirations of many at risk young people.

Please take some time to read more on our activities and the positive difference you are making to children experiencing disadvantage around the country.

Wishing you all a peaceful and restorative Christmas break.
