The Little Village Project was established to make sure students of Traralgon’s Stockdale Road Primary School get the therapeutic and allied health attention they may need. The costs of such services can be a great burden for many families, which is why major local businesses and organisations across the Latrobe Valley have provided grants to this foundation.
An initiative of Stockdale Road’s welfare support officer, Benjamin Tunks, The Little Village Project began in 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic and, as at June 2023, has helped 50 students with things like mental health care, speech therapy and sensory needs. With the removal of these barriers to a student’s engagement at school, they can more fully participate in classes and other activities, setting them up for a better future.
Help primary schools to engage their most disadvantaged students and support them to thrive.
