Quota funds kids trip

SEVEN children from Proserpine High School will go to Townsville in September after receiving a donation on Friday night from Quota Club of Whitsundays.

Quota donated a cheque of $784 to the Special Education Services at the Proserpine High School as part of Quota Goes 'Glam' with cocktails under the stars at Deja` Vu restaurant.

The diverse learner students will participate in a two day program (transition conference) taking place on September 2 and 3 called 'Your Life Your Choice' which will give them the opportunity to socialise and look at future career options.

The program is also part of a joint innovative with Work Connection in Airlie Beach who is a specialist employment agency for diverse learners.

The two initiatives will ensure that these students will receive support at school and then in the work place as well.

Acting Head of Special Education Services at Proserpine High School Linda Boyes is looking forward to the educational outcomes of the trip and thanked Quota for their support.

“Without this donation this trip would not take place,” she said.

“The children are excited about the socialising and meeting new people.

“I'm excited about the educational outcomes.”

The transition conference takes place every two years and Quota has agreed to support the program in the future.
