We are excited to have a program at Operation Newstart Northern running for Term 2 and thrilled to be working with students again. Next week we will welcome 8 students from both the Yarra City Council, as well as Nillumbik and Darebin City Councils.
We have an exciting 8 week program ahead, with a calendar that is filled with community engagement and outdoor adventure activities that help support each student to develop stronger relationships with self, family, school and the broader community.
Throughout the program we will be utilizing services that are located within the Yarra City Council, to expose students to the different support services and community programs that are available in the area. A big thank you to Yarra City Council for their ongoing support and we look forward to working together in the upcoming weeks and beyond.
This week we will be holding a parent and student information evening to help share the vision for the term and starting building the foundations for a rewarding program ahead.
Operation Newstart Northern would like to take this opportunity to thank Bendigo Bank for their donation for both Term 1 and 2 this year. The donation allowed our students to engage in a bike build and donation program. The newly built bikes were donated to young people at the Collingwood English Language school. A fantastic example of how Operation Newstart students are building positive relationships with the broader community.
Additionally, we would also like to thank My Ride, who are supporting our students in learning further about their bike safety for these community projects.
Looking ahead, we have two more exciting programs for 2023.
Moreland City Council
20th July- 8th September 2023
Hume City Council
12th October- 1st December 2023
If there are students within your school that would benefit from being part of the Operation Newstart Northern program, then please refer to the Operation Newstart Northern website for further information and the referral process.
We are looking forward to all 2023 programs and continuing to offer meaningful experiences to young people in order for them to recognise and reach their full potential.
