Supporting Our Community


School Savvy is a Centacare FNQ initiative which facilitates access to school uniforms and school supplies for children in families struggling financially in the busy back to school period at the start of the school year. The initiative was created in 2016 with the first ever School Savvy Appeal launched as part of Anti-Poverty Week 2016. The appeal called for donations of pre-loved stationery supplies and school uniforms for a pop-up shop which was opened in early January 2017.

The concept initially was to recycle pre-loved uniforms and stationery supplies however, in reality and thanks to the generosity of the Cairns community, School Savvy has distributed not only pre-loved goods, but an estimated $25,000 worth of donated new supplies, in each year of operation. The response from the community continues to grow and each year a new layer is added to provide more support to families in our community.
