Ardoch utilises funding and support from a range of sources to help make these programs as affordable as possible for the schools we partner with. To give schools the chance to explore the many benefits of an Ardoch partnership, we offer the first year of membership free of charge, including activities for up to 100 students. For subsequent years we provide three packages to meet the specific needs of schools. Our Education Partnership Coordinators are happy to explore options to see what might best fit these needs.
Please note where a school has multiple campuses each campus will need to have a separate membership.
One program is generally for up to 30 students; please contact Halley (WestSydney@ardoch.org.au) for more information.
There are a limited number of Learning Through Lunch, Buddies Programs and Writers in Residence programs. Please contact Halley to discuss options if you would like more than one. We might be able to make it happen.
Ardoch can provide schools with additional programs at a cost of $10 per child, depending on availability.
From time to time Ardoch will also have fully funded activities it can offer schools for free. Halley will advise when such opportunities arise.
