CUA Community Care Grant

Ivanhoe Grammar School recently entered the CUA Community Care School grant to help fund a school sustainability project at Plenty Campus. The intention was to create a vegetable and herb garden that is designed and maintained by the students, with minimal assistance from parents and staff.

Voting for the CUA grant closed on Sunday 24 August, with an overwhelming response (more than 43,000 votes) from both the participating schools and the wider school community.

Throughout the voting period, all votes were verified via a rigorous process to ensure only legitimate votes were counted. All these votes were then calculated on a pro-rata basis to ensure all participating schools, regardless of their size, were competing on a level playing field.

St Joseph the Worker School, won the CUA Community Care grant for their sustainability project proposal to promote sustainability at their school. Due to the high calibre of the submissions that were received, CUA decided to award $1,000.00 consolation prizes to a number of schools in the Epping area, including Ivanhoe Grammar School.

The funds the School will receive will assist with realising the vision of a sustainable vegetable garden at Plenty Campus.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted and your continued support of the School.
