Noosa Flexible Learning Centre is a part of Edmund Rice Education Australia’s national initiative, Youth+, which aims to respond to the needs of young people in the local community.  They offer educational pathways for young people aged 12-25.

They provide young people with an opportunity to re-engage in education in a flexible, supported learning environment.  Young people who attend their schools have typically experienced one or more significant and complex educational, social, developmental, psychological, health, legal or familial situations which demand unique responses.  Such interventions are embedded within an educational framework but also typically involve medical, multidisciplinary, legal and/or social support personnel network systems.

The SCCF Committee granted $4,865.00 towards the fit-out of a 4WD to assist with their progressive and highly engaging flexible learning program.  The vehicle required roof racks, tub liner and some basic off-road essentials in order to get it ready for the Flexi School’s work readiness and outdoor education programs.  We hope that now that they have the kit the kids will be back on track to complete their studies at full throttle!
