Crisis Appeal: Support our Schools

Australian Schools Plus, NSW

Schools Plus thanks Australia's incredible teachers who are responding with passion and professionalism at this time of crisis.

Against a backdrop of disaster – drought, bushfires, floods and now the horrors of coronavirus - schools need our support. The long-term impact on children’s learning is not clear, but it will be significant.

The unprecedented bushfire season over spring and summer devastated hundreds of regional communities. So many lives, homes and businesses were lost and thousands of Australians experienced trauma and anxiety as they and their loved ones were threatened by the flames.

Whilst still reeling from the bushfires, the biggest crisis to ever hit Australian schools rapidly unfolded with the coronavirus pandemic forcing students to learn from home. It’s a difficult but not impossible task for children living in homes with parents able to support them and access to technology. However, for vulnerable children living in disadvantaged communities, it can be a very different story.

Disadvantage was already the single biggest factor affecting children’s learning, and the coronavirus is now exacerbating that. More than one million Australians have already lost their jobs as a result of coronavirus. This is putting increased financial stress on families who were already struggling. While we work towards an uncertain future, we do know that the most vulnerable children across Australia will be the ones most affected by this series of catastrophes.

Schools Plus is working with state and federal education departments, other not-for-profit organisations and our network of schools to support the mental health, wellbeing and learning needs of students affected by these unprecedented disasters. Many schools do not have adequate resources to support their students, teachers and families through and beyond this crisis – for instance, they may have limited access to counselling support or school-based welfare staff, or they may need additional technology or professional development to deliver online learning.

Our schools and teachers need our support more than ever, and we are ready to help.

Your donation will help provide the resources and support required to ensure students in disadvantaged communities across Australia can recover from these setbacks and fulfil their potential – thank you for giving.
