As we approach the halfway mark of the school year, it's incredible to reflect on how time flies. Countless lessons have been taught, tests have been taken, homework has been eaten by the dog, and it's likely that a few school jumpers have mysteriously disappeared along the way.

Our children are fully immersed in their year of learning, and as parents, we may find ourselves contemplating decisions for the upcoming year sooner than we anticipated.

In this issue we take a closer look at the world of scholarships and provide a comprehensive guide for parents who are seeking financial assistance to support their child’s education. We share valuable tips and insights on how to navigate the application process, opening doors to educational opportunities that may have seemed out of reach. We also take a look at the diverse range of scholarship offerings from schools across the state, showcasing the possibilities available to students.

For those with musical futures on their minds, we have a guide to choosing the right instrument for your child thanks to founder of Muzikboxx, music teacher and musician Monica Rouvellas. Choosing the perfect instrument for your child can be quite the challenge, but Monica walks us through the essential factors to consider when guiding your little maestro toward their musical destiny. And hey, if it turns out to be a recorder, who are we to argue?

We also have the privilege of sharing Junior Landcare’s invaluable insights on connecting with Country and educating children about First Nations perspectives. This article shines a light on the significance of indigenous knowledge and the profound connection to the land and emphasises the invaluable contributions of First Nations communities to landcare initiatives, bringing forth unique perspectives on environmental stewardship.

Thank you for your continued support of EDUCATE. We hope this issue inspires meaningful conversations and empowers you to make a positive impact in the lives of your young learners.
