Our Community Bank came to the rescue of the Meredith Primary School during the Covid pandemic when the number of mobile devices for home schooling was stretched to the limit.
This Community Investment project ensured all families had adequate notebooks and devices as home schooling became the new norm. Most importantly, the local students weren’t disadvantaged as the rest of the state continued learning.
School Principal Steven Trotter said “This had a significant impact on our community. The ability to guarantee that all of our families that needed support, got that support was incredible, as well as reducing the stress and pressure at home. It also means we have a new bank of devices to support in-class learning now we’re all back on-site”.
