Glen Street Theatre
A trip to the theatre exposes students to new ideas, inspires their creativity and challenges them to think critically, with primary and secondary school excursions available.
Our libraries offer students personalised homework help and revision resources, regular events like reading groups and open mic nights and annual events like the HSC lock-ins, reading challenges and writing competitions.
These grants help local schools become more environmentally-friendly, measurably reducing their carbon footprint and becoming leaders in sustainability and climate action.
