The Trust has provided continued support for a primary-aged student from St Brendan's School in Moorooka. In the words of the school's principal, "the support is unable to be adequately expressed in words. This little boy has experienced so much trauma in his young life it doesn't seem fair and the progress that he has made is truly miraculous." Find out more here.
