CRT Primary Schools Program

Lending a hand to rural and regional primary schools

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).

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.

CRT Primary School Program

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 award a gift of $2,000 to 25 chosen Parents and Friends Associations (or equivalent).
Eligible P & F Associations must have demonstrated an active role in the primary school community, the primary school’s need for the funds, the wide benefit the funds will provide for the primary school community and that they will be used to enrich and enhance the primary school experience for the students.

The gift is intended for projects or activities that are above and beyond government funding and are deemed a requirement for the school.

Some of the successful projects awarded in the 2022 round of the CRT Primary schools program included:

  • Kitchen gardens
  • Sporting equipment
  • Learning resources
  • Cultural enrichment activities and resources
  • Excursions
