FOLLOWING 18 months of interrupted learning, the Jewish Children’s Aid Society (JCAS) has announced that it will make a special payment of $5000 to each of the 11 Jewish day schools in Melbourne.

JCAS president Trevor Cohen, said, “The last two years have taken their toll on everyone, but especially children. At JCAS we wanted to help our schools as children return to the classrooms, to make sure that they have all the support they need.”

Proud to be able to make this additional payment, Cohen thanked the generosity of supporters and “the tireless efforts of Rosalie Silverstein and her team at the Posh Opp Shoppes who have continued to trade online throughout the lockdowns”.

The one-off payment is in addition to the financial support that JCAS will provide this year to enable children with special needs to participate fully in school life.

Established in 1882, JCAS’s mission is to support children with special needs to attend Melbourne Jewish day schools, under the banner of “Education, Inclusion and Belonging.”
