"Education is not a delivery system for knowledge. And gaps in learning cannot be magically filled by technology. Teaching is about relationships. Human contact. We learn by..."
Meet Rohit, 12 Buckets' second Young Ambassador for 2017. Rohit has become an integral and valued member of the 12 Buckets community, and we're rapt that, instead of saying goodbye, we have the privilege of continuing to walk alongside and partner with him as he heads off to high school. As he graduates from primary school, he is a markedly different young man than the nervous boy who first walked into the 12 Buckets room in 2014.
As 2016 draws to a close, 12 Buckets will farewell a number of students as they graduate from primary school and head off to high school.
Now, money raised from our Bassendean on the Green concert will enable 12 Buckets to expand its program into high schools in 2017. This will mean that, instead of saying goodbye, we'll be able to continue walking alongside students through their teenage years.
Another new initiative is our Junior Ambassador program and it's our great delight to introduce one of our inaugural ambassadors ...
Bassendean on the Green will be jammed packed with a stellar line-up of Perth music acts. Be treated to the melodic harmonies of Darling; the powerful vocals of EDDE; junk percussion and brass street band Junkadelic; incredible blues guitarist and vocalist, Andrew Winton, and Peaty & Neat (featuring Trevor Jalla).
So I'm almost through the book Never Eat Alone by Ferrazzi as part of my pre-work for the next session of The Growth Project. While there are some excellent insights throughout about the importance of developing and tending to networks of mutual generosity, it's what Ferrazzi said up front that really caught my attention:
Term 3 is off to an exciting start, with 12 Buckets celebrating a newly formed partnership with Boyare Primary School, as well as welcoming Tim Rutter, our newest staff member, who will be based at Boyare, as School Liaison.
12 Buckets have a new toy.
Only it's not really a toy. It's a microscope.
But it doesn't look like one you'd expect to find in a science lab ...
How many eleven year olds do you know who have been to university?
At 12 Buckets, we know 36 of them.
Thanks to the generosity of staff at Curtin University, and the University Aspirations Program, students from each of our three schools were able to experience a day on campus ...
We are thrilled to say, we achieved this goal!! We've have left it up for you to read about and we will provide more updates soon!!
Marion Ferguson's earliest memory is of sitting on the ground at Shark Bay, eye level with thousands of everlasting daisies. She's been fascinated by plants ever since, so much so, that she has spent most of her adult life either as a gardener or working in nurseries.
Now, she's using her green thumb to transform the garden at Balga Primary School and to share her gardening knowledge with a group of 12 Buckets students.
At 12 Buckets, we believe that fullness of life comes when you pour yourself out for others.
We're pretty sure the staff at Squire Patton Boggs (SPB), winner of the Corporate Volunteer of the Year Award believe it, too. They have certainly demonstrated it in the multiple ways they support 12 Buckets through the law firm's Community Investment Program.
