Journey to Primary School resources win Victorian Multicultural Award

Published Dec 17 2020

Merri Health has won a prestigious Victorian Multicultural Award for its 'Journey to Primary School’ resources.

Developed by Merri’s Ready, Set, Prep! Team, the resources won the ‘Excellence in Education’ category at an online ceremony on 16 December.

The resources include an illustrated poster (available in English, Arabic, Bangla, Hindi, Nepali, Pashto and Urdu) outlining a child’s journey through education from birth to primary school, and a video series of informative videos detailing the importance of early childhood learning.

This award recognises the great work of the Ready, Set, Prep! partnership and the Fawkner community to improve school readiness and life outcomes for children and families.

The Ready, Set, Prep! initiative (currently operating in Fawkner) will be expanding to Glenroy and Hadfield in 2021.
