Coming in July 2020
A partnership between Hands of Change, Meredith Primary School and Golden Plains Shire Youth Development Team will see the design and delivery of a new program called “Nurturing Young Minds for their Future”.
This project is aimed at year six students, to teach them practical business skills for the future - focusing on planning and budgeting; building resilience and a can-do attitude.
Using the concept of a Community Garden as the basis for this project, students will be required to:
- form a business
- nominate a management team
- execute the project from beginning to end
Key skill sets related to planning, perseverance and resilience will be taught. These skills link to core capabilities required in business and everyday life skills. Our aim is to develop these skills through this experiential program at an early age to increase the success rate of these students as they progress to high-school and beyond.
We will be seeking volunteers to assist with this program and also with the build of the Community Garden. Please get in touch if interested.
The Meredith & District Lions Club will be supporting this initiative and we are seeking support from other community members to assist in the design, build and ongoing maintenance of the garden. Please register your interest and we will contact you in due course.
