They say education is the passport to the future.
And now local students will be even more equipped to get there after receiving a flood of educational resources from the Woolworths Earn and Learn program.
Benalla College’s brand new resources include games, mathematics, English, gardening and sustainability, science, outdoor and active, sport and construction resources. Plus teacher and classroom resources to keep the college running smoothly.
Woolworths Benalla store manager Leigh Harman said he was delighted to invest in local children’s futures through the program.
‘‘Its a privilege to be able to deliver the Earn and Learn educational equipment and resources, as we know how important and needed it is for schools and early learning centres in the area,’’ he said.
‘‘Thank you to everyone in the community for your efforts in collecting stickers as part of the program.
‘‘As a result of your contribution, we are delighted to provide schools and early learning centres with a range of popular resources to support the next generation of our local community.’’
Nationally, Woolworths will be delivering 300,000 pieces of educational equipment to across 15,000 schools and early learning centres throughout the country, assisting more than three million pupils.
