The grant will help Teach For Australia in the

Teaching Learning Advisors in Tasmania.
“We are very excited that Hydro Tasmania will help
support the delivery of these workshops, and we greatly appreciate the
generosity,” Teach For Australia’s Tasmanian State Manager Charlie Williams

will have lasting impact on the participating teachers, allowing them to be
better informed and equipped to work with vulnerable students with a trauma
“The Berry Street Education Model has demonstrated
improvements in student morale, teacher effectiveness, stimulating learning,
student motivation, learning confidence, connectedness to peers, classroom
behaviour and student safety.”
Tasmania CEO Steve Davy said the business is here to make life better for every

the Nation we’re building the state’s future prosperity, but
we also want to make direct contributions to the community that will really
make an immediate difference,” Mr Davy said.
