NORTH EASTERN ZONE FIRE CARRIER ART SHOW
St. Charles Borromeo School is excited to announce that we will be hosting the North Eastern Zone FIRE Carrier Art Show. The pieces of this exhibition were created by the 20 schools within the North Eastern Zone. They were a culmination of learning, ideas and inspirations that arose from the Student day at Amberley Centre last year.
The exhibition of work was displayed during NAIDOC Week 2016 at St. Francis Church Melbourne and has since been travelling around the 20 schools within the North Eastern community.
The art will be on display this week in the Multi-Purpose Room and will be open for viewing at the following times:
Tuesday 14th March between 3 – 3.30pm
Wednesday 15th March between 8.30am – 9am
Thursday 16th March between 8.30 – 9am
Friday 17th March between 9 – 9.30am
We invite all students, teachers, parents, grandparents and family members to visit and support this exhibition. We will be asking for a gold coin donation on entry. This money will go to the Opening the Doors Foundation which you can read about below. We thank you in anticipation of your support.

OPENING THE DOORS FOUNDATION
The Opening the Doors Foundation addresses the severe educational disadvantage still being experienced by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, by providing assistance so that they are able to choose and successfully maintain a positive education environment for their children.
The Foundation provides grants towards the funding of educational costs not otherwise funded from government or other educational funding sources to cover costs such as school uniforms, books, school camps and other school associated costs.
Founded in 2001 the Foundation financially helped 32 students at Catholic schools, in 2003, the Foundation received DGR status and expanded support to Aboriginal families choosing any non-government educational setting. Over the next few years numbers steadily increased and in the 2010 school year the Foundation supported over 460 students.
