The Apex Foundation giving opportunities for future employment for Students with Autism – August 2021

 The Apex Foundation has supplied a trailer and tools worth more than $13,000 for a very special project for a school for children with Autism at the Aspect School in the Central Coat of New South Wales.  Two years ago, we funded a Van for the same school to assist the children out of the classroom and into the community to increase their employment opportunities.

The Apex Foundation giving opportunities for future employment for Students with Autism

 The Apex Foundation has supplied a trailer and tools worth more than $13,000 for a very special project for a school for children with Autism at the Aspect School in the Central Coat of New South Wales.  Two years ago, we funded a Van for the same school to assist the children out of the classroom and into the community to increase their employment opportunities.

This year, we took a further step and agreed to support the school with the purchase of equipment for a school/ community-based lawn and garden maintenance program for their high school students.

The aim of the program is to provide work experience opportunities within the school and the community with the possibility of a traineeship in the future. We worked closely with the students and the teachers to find out exactly what they needed and came up with the following:

8 ft x 5 ft caged Trailer with ramp

  • Sign writing on the Trailer
  • 2 x Mowers – Petrol driven
  • 2 x Brush cutters – battery operated
  • 2 x Blowers – battery operated
  • 1 x Hedger – battery operated
  • Spare Batteries
  • Wheelbarrow
  • Garden tools and tool bags
  • Brooms, rakes, and garbage bins
  • Safety gear and sun hats for 12 students
  • Fuel cans and
  • towbar for the Bus which we donated two years ago.

 

We tried to make sure that the tools we bought were user friendly for every child and therefore purchased battery operated tools with low noise and less vibration, as far as possible. The School now has a full lawn mowing and home gardening business ready for work including full cans of fuel.

 

The Trust that funded this project was the Autism Trust that the APEX Foundation manages which came from funds that Apex clubs around Australia had raised in 1969 during a Walk around Australia by the Apex clubs of Australia to raise awareness of Autism and Autism research.

This program will have a huge positive long-term impact for many high school students, who are living with Autism, for many years into the future.
