Right Choices



At St Arnaud Primary School we facilitate a program called the Right Choices Program. This is a community based early intervention program that has key partnerships formed with St Vincent de Paul, Sisters of Mercy, St Arnaud Neighbourhood House, Grampians Community Health and Bendigo Community Bank, just to mention a few. It involves students being involved in a range of programs including Meals on Wheels, St Vincent de Paul Op Shop, Food bank, community gardening, visitation program to the hostel, nursing home and kindergarten, farm education, blacksmith, speech assistance, music, cooking and community kitchen. The program also provides parenting programs, welfare support and school based counselling services and a visiting psychologist. The program has been featured on ABC 730 and ABC Radio, Sunrise Program and in a range of publication. We are also a 7 Habits ' Leader in Me' School. The use of the 7 habits has only strengthened our ability to build and sustain community partnerships.
