Webinar with Thomas Lopez & Sherrill Nixon from Schools Plus 


Schools Plus is a national charity that connects donors with schools in disadvantaged communities, to give students the opportunities they need to fulfil their potential.

Disadvantage is the greatest factor affecting student achievement in Australia, and the recent series of crises – drought, bushfires and coronavirus – is only exacerbating the education gap. The work to close the gap will continue long after this period has passed.

Schools Plus partners with community-minded philanthropists to make lasting and profound change to student learning outcomes.

She began with Schools Plus as the Operations Manager, helping to develop the organisation’s direction, structure, programs and technology.

Thomas Lopez, State Manager – VIC/TAS
