Schools play a vital role in our regional communities. That’s why we’ve started the CRT Primary Schools Program to lend a helping hand to rural and regional primary schools’ Parents and Friends Associations (P&F Associations).
Volunteering countless hours, parents and community members are dedicated to creating the best possible experience for students. As a vital part of agricultural communities, we believe an investment in primary schools is an investment in a smart, strong, confident outlook for regional Australia.
The CRT Primary Schools Program will assist the work of these important P&F volunteer organisations and recognise how they contribute to the success of the next generation as they grow and learn.
We will provide a gift of $2,000 to 25 chosen Parents and Friends Associations (or equivalent).
The P&F Associations (or equivalent) must support a rural or regional primary school in an area within our store footprint.
The gift is intended for projects or activities that are above and beyond government funding and are deemed a requirement for the school.
For example, the gift could be used to contribute to:
