Foundation Day grant for BEPS

FondationDay2014This year Brunswick East Primary School will be the recipient of the professional fees from the Nelson Alexander Brunswick office auction of 188 Stewart Street, Brunswick East.

 “Nelson Alexander’s Foundation Day is the day that Nelson Alexander do something special:  It’s the day that each of their thirteen offices donate the professional fee from one of their auctions to the local community.

Foundation Day is an initiative of the Nelson Alexander Charitable Foundation, which was established, and continues to be managed by staff – maximising participation in community service and fund raising events for worthwhile local causes.

Since its inception in 2005, the Nelson Alexander Charitable Foundation has been a resounding success and has distributed over $1.3 million dollars to our local community.

As Janet advised in last week’s newsletter, the money received from the Auction will go to The Agora Project. As the application for Foundation Day said “The children of BEPS have identified this area as a space they would like to see improved. Through projects led by the students and the dedicated teaching team at BEPS, the children have proposed many inspiring ways to enrich this learning space. From improving light into the area with see through roofing, to comfortable and friendship enriching seating options, to green walls and inspired play spaces, the children would love to see this area brought to life and renamed ‘The Agora’.

BEPS strongly agrees with Moreland City Council’s initiative to improve the green spaces in the Brunswick Community and with funding, BEPS could introduce more green space into this area. Unfortunately due to the lack of funds, this vision cannot be brought to life.

The Principal, teachers, students and parent and carer community of BEPS would love to see this initiative supported so that we can bring the children’s vision for The Agora to life.”

The BEPS community is very excited to be the recipients of this money and wish Nelson Alexander and the home owners the best of luck for the Auction.
