The Spirit of School Savvy – over 1000 children helped

15 February, 2022
School Savvy Day 1 Rockhampton

At CentacareCQ, we believe that every child deserves to have a positive and successful experience at school.

We are passionate about giving local families the opportunity to access affordable back-to-school resources, such as school uniforms and essential stationery supplies, so that children can feel confident and excited from the moment they take their first steps back into the classroom.

With the help of local business, we deliver the School Savvy CQ program to our region annually, through convenient and affordable back-to-school pop-up shops.  The spirit of School Savvy and making a difference in the lives of children is something that CentacareCQ feels very strongly about.

We thank everyone for their support in January 2022, and we look forward to another bright and successful year of School Savvy in January 2023.
