Your generosity will provide urgent relief to the school communities impacted by the floods in QLD and NSW.
A new crisis is affecting the education and wellbeing of more than 100,000 students in NSW and Queensland.
The devastating floods that have surged across south-east Queensland and the NSW coast have forced the closure of more than 350 schools and affected the communities of many others. Many schools have been submerged entirely, and it’s unclear when they will reopen.
Heartbreakingly, thousands of students, teachers and their families have been left with nothing after the floodwaters inundated their homes.
As one Lismore principal told us: “Many of our students, families and staff have lost everything. At least if we can get them to school then we can also begin to look after the welfare and wellbeing of our students. And the sooner we can get them back into the classrooms the better for them all but we need support to do this.”
Schools Plus has launched its 2022 Flood Recovery Appeal to support the school communities shattered by this latest natural disaster.
For too many communities, this is yet another disaster to face after the 2019/20 bushfires, 2021 floods and the COVID-19 pandemic. We know from the events of the past two years the critical role of schools – as the hub of any community, they will unite locals and support them to get through this crisis together.
Your donation will support the Schools Plus Disaster Recovery Fund, to help schools recover from devastating crises like this. With your generosity, we will provide flood-affected schools with essential funding needed to keep kids learning and to support the wellbeing of students, teachers and other community members.
