Fund­ing helps plan soar

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THE Aus­tralian Is­lamic Col­lege has started a new lead­er­ship pro­gram thanks to a lo­cal govern­ment grant.

The City of Bel­mont Con­tri­bu­tion Fund was es­tab­lished to pro­vide lim­ited fi­nan­cial sup­port to groups in the City to help with com­mu­nity projects and ini­tia­tives.

Teacher Nuria Usho­roff ap­plied for a grant with her Un­der A Wing Pro­gram, which she said was in­spired by the West Coast Ea­gles.

“I wanted to start up a group of Year 6 stu­dents who could dis­play lead­er­ship qual­i­ties to oth­ers in the school, whether it’s to be a men­tor, a coach or an AFL stu­dent am­bas­sador dur­ing footy sea­son,” she said.

“We were lucky enough to re­ceive $2000 to start up the pro­gram and pro­vide stu­dents with spe­cial badges and shirts, and we’ve been work­ing with the P&F com­mit­tee so the stu­dents can help with fundrais­ers, break­fast days and rep­re­sent the school in lo­cal com­mu­nity projects.”
