The School Lawyer created an inclusive relationship with students, parents/guardians and teachers that extended beyond the traditional solicitor-client relationship. The second year allowed the School Lawyer to continue this important work at The Grange P-12 College and expand to Warringa Park School. Warringa Park School is a specialist school located next door to The Grange and caters for students aged 15-18 years who have a diagnosed intellectual disability. WINDERMERE CHILD AND FAMILY SERVICES Building Respectful Relationships Gender-based violence is a significant issue in the City of Casey and Shire of Cardinia. In 2015 Windermere Child and Family Services was funded by Newsboys to conduct the Building Respectful Relationships workshops with the entire Year 8 cohort at Cranbourne Secondary College. Newsboys is now supporting the implementation of the second year of the program with the entire Year 9 cohort at Cranbourne Secondary College. YALARI Scholarship Program Yalari provides Indigenous children from remote, rural and regional communities with scholarships to attend leading Australian boarding schools. Indigenous educator Waverley Stanley started the program in 2005 to educate and empower Indigenous children to lead generational change. The Newsboys Foundation grant sponsors Jaycee Sellings at Geelong Grammar School. “Some of my highlights for this year include getting Most Valuable Player (MVP) for softball in first term and getting into the Geelong Representative Team for hockey. I am really enjoying hockey and we do nine hours a week at school and out of school. I play in the Geelong under 14s and I really enjoy it. I hope I can stay in the hockey squad for a long time to come.” JAYCEE SELLINGS 100 STORY BUILDING The Literary Underground This grant was funded by the Newsboys Foundation Trust 100 Story Building will work alongside 20 to 30 young people aged 12-18 years from marginalised communities to develop and deliver a series of 12 literary workshops.
