Gordonvale State School Wins NAB Schools First Awards!

Over the years Gordonvale State School has developed a number of strong partnerships through our Excelsior: A Whole Community Approach to Sustainability initiative. Our partnership with the Mulgrave Landcare and Catchment Group has been recognised through the NAB Schools First Awards with the school receiving a $50 000 Impact Award to further extend the range of community projects that students at Gordonvale State School, Gordonvale State High School, Aloomba State School and the Gordonvale Community Kindergarten are able to participate in.

The Award also acknowledges the partnerships that the school has developed with Cairns Regional Council, Queensland Fisheries, CSIRO, GBRMPA, Tangaroa Blue Foundation, DERM and the Local Marine Advisory Committee and the extension of the Excelsior Program to Gordonvale State High School, Aloomba State School and the Gordonvale Community Kindergarten.

The Award will be presented to the student's on Wednesday 5th October at a full school assembly which will be attended by partners and students.
