A message from the Shore Foundation President
To uphold our integrity and ensure our programmes and events are in line with our mission, we constantly reflect on our primary role - to assist the School to achieve its vision to be the leading comprehensive school in Australia.
It is this vision that drives our commitment to programmes such as the capital campaign for the new RAI Grant Physical Education Centre, support for our Country Boarders, Indigenous students and Educational Services at Shore. We are also increasing our investment in new areas at Shore such as supporting the Head of Careers role. Foundation events are popular with the Shore Community. These include the Icebreaker, our All Sports Lunch and also the Garden Party.
We are very grateful to the Shore community for allowing us to provide more opportunities for our students. In 2021 over half of year 7 Country Boarders will be receiving Foundation assistance. The Foundation will also be providing support for 11 Indigenous students.
We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Shore community, to achieve the best possible outcomes for all students.
