iPads for non-verbal students

State Schools’ Relief, in partnership with Bank First and Gandel Philanthropy, was pleased to once again supply iPads for non-verbal Victorian students in 2021, allowing them to communicate with their families, teachers, carers and friends through the use of a learning device.

A total of 410 iPads were provided to specialist school students in 51 schools across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.

For the families & carers who can afford them, iPads have enabled engagement with learning and meaningful communication for many young people; however, at a cost of more than $600 each, many parents and carers are not in a position to be able to provide this essential tool for their child.

Check back in early Term 1, 2022 for more information on this program.
