The Calwell, Curtin, Jerrabomberra, and Wanniassa Community Bank® branches (Bendigo Bank) are delighted to advise that Missing School has been successfully nominated to receive a 100 Community Heroes Grant. The grant, worth $1000, will enable MissingSchool to run an event in the ACT for families, educators, health practitioners and researchers — hopefully the first of many around Australia — called “Keeping Seriously Sick Kids Connected”. The 100 Community Heroes Campaign is a way of showing support for community groups like MissingSchool who are out there making a difference every day. MissingSchool will attend a ceremony on Wednesday, 24 July, 2013 to accept the grant. A big thank you from MissingSchool to Calwell, Curtin, Jerrabomberra, and Wanniassa Community Bank® branches for recognising the importance of keeping seriously sick kids connected to their school communities.
