Understanding our Fair Education program

The importance of family and community engagement in children’s learning is undisputed, but how to deliver this effectively in diverse school communities is less clear-cut. Schools Plus’ Fair Education program looks to address this very issue.

The Ross Trust makes Fair Education Victoria a reality

In 2018, due to the early success of the Fair Education NSW program (started in 2015), Schools Plus sought funding to trial a similar program in Victoria. The result was a three-year grant from The Ross Trust – a perpetual charitable trust with a vision to create positive social and environmental change so Victorians can thrive.
