For 30 years Bank First, a bank first established by teachers for teachers, has recognised and rewarded innovation in our schools. Our Teaching Initiatives Program (TIP) has granted more than $778,000 to support more than 700 projects in Victorian schools.
Generations of school children have benefited from TIP funding. Projects range from establishing worm and compost farms, music, art and performing arts equipment and programs, mathematical and recycled playgrounds and those which reflect cultural and Indigenous diversity in our schools.
While we take a look back at TIP funded projects across the years, we look forward to celebrating our 2023 recipients.
