The Smith Family’s Back-to-School Appeal


26 May 2011

One of Santos' major community partners, The Smith Family, is conducting its Back-to-School Appeal, which provides educational support to Australian children in need.

One in seven Australian children are unable to access the same educational, health or life opportunities that many of us enjoy.

Research shows that the most effective way to help financially disadvantaged children is to support their education. Through the Back-to-School Appeal, you can make a real difference.

“Sadly, there are over 600,000 children across Australia considered to be financially disadvantaged,” said Graham Jaeschke, Smith Family General Manager South Australia.

“To break the cycle of disadvantage, we need to ensure these children can access the learning opportunities many of us take for granted.

“We are grateful to Santos employees for considering this opportunity.”
