St James' Primary School Muswellbrook beneficiary of Woolworths Earn & Learn program

ST James' Primary School Muswellbrook received vital educational resources this week, thanks to Woolworths Muswellbrook.

The supermarket chain delivered the equipment as part of the Woolworths Earn & Learn program.

The popular concept is one of Woolworths' biggest community initiatives.

Running since 2011, it sees Aussies come together to collect stickers to help schools and early learning centres obtain a variety of much-needed educational resources to support great minds of the future.

"We're delighted to accept the science equipment," assistant principal Shannon Hall said.

"And, I'm sure the students will love it, too."

"We're so excited to be getting out and about in the community and to meet pupils at St James' Primary School that received the equipment through our Earn & Learn program," Woolworths Muswellbrook store manager Chris Ebrill added.

"We want to say a big thank you to everyone in Muswellbrook for your efforts in collecting stickers and helping local schools in the community obtain resources that will help support the next generation of Aussie kids."

Across NSW, Woolworths will be delivering more than 172,000 pieces of equipment to schools and early learning centres, with more than 500,000 resources set to be distributed nationally.

This year, Woolworths also launched a new Remote Schools Program initiative, which ensures schools that may not be near a Woolworths store can still benefit from the Earn & Learn program via sticker donations from other local communities.

More than 150 remote and rural schools will receive in excess of 10,000 pieces of educational equipment.
