Bogan Gate Public School has been recognised with the second highest award, a Platinum Award, from Stewart House for fund raising efforts in 2015. They were one of only ten schools across the state to receive this award. Students from Bogan Gate are now aiming for the highest award, a Diamond Award, and hope to achieve this in the next three years.
Stewart House in Sydney provides a residential program for public school students. It gives children opportunities to participate in a great variety of experiences not usually available to them. As well as participating in educational programs, students are also provided with dental, optometric and medical assessments and urgent treatment.
Carefully planned activities encourage and promote respect for self and others, develop positive learning behaviour and social skills as well as behaviour that supports healthy living. Students take part in constructive learning activities and experiences which include Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk, Crab Hunting, City Tour, a trip on a Sydney ferry and Taronga Zoo and Aquarium visits.
