At TGA we believe the local community is one of our most valuable resources and in turn, give back in any way we can.
Our biggest fundraiser is for women’s cancers where The Grove Academy has raised over $15,420 for the Cancer Council since 2015.
Other fundraisers held here at The Grove Academy include Afternoon Teal for Ovarian Cancer Australia, the Bandaged Bear Appeal for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and The World’s Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation, to name a few! All parents and families are invited and encouraged to join us during these special events, it’s a great chance to socialise while giving back to the community!
Open Door Policy
The Grove Academy values the ideas, skills, and knowledge that all family and community members may have, and we encourage their contributions into our service. We promote an Open-Door Policy where family and community members are invited to contribute to our daily centre programs and any special events that occur at the centre.
To ensure that families are completely satisfied and trusting of our services, we believe it is important to provide them with opportunity to visit our centre and participate in our program at a time that is convenient for them.
The Grove Academy is proud to partner with One Tree Planted to support their focus on global reforestation.
We have chosen to support One Tree Planted on their mission as we both value the importance of giving back to the environment, creating a healthier climate, protecting biodiversity and helping reforestation efforts around the world. As a part of this partnership, one tree is planted for each enrolment received.
Ronald McDonald Partnership
The Grove Academy is proud to partner with The Ronald McDonald House Westmead to support their Learning Program.
We have chosen to support RMH as we both strongly believe in the value of education for young children. The Learning Program helps children with serious illness catch up on their missed education following lengthy hospital stays and absence from school. The program is often the first step towards normalcy for seriously ill children and their families and sends a clear message that we believe in their future.
As a part of this partnership, a portion of each enrolment fee is donated to RMH.
Community Volunteer Day
The Grove Academy offers all staff members an employer-sponsored paid day to do volunteer work within the local community. Studies show that volunteering improves mental health and increases happiness. At The Grove Academy, we want our staff members to reap the mental, physical, and emotional benefits that come from helping others. Some past examples include volunteering at a food bank, local hospital or educating disadvantaged youth.
