At Sholem Aleichem College we take great pride in being pre and primary school specialists. We know these years provide the foundations upon which a child’s future success and happiness are based. We also believe that the early years are the most important time for a child to build their love of Judaism and Yiddishkayt.

Today we stand at one of the most exciting, and also most crucial phases, in our college’s history. Sholem’s academic results place us among the leading primary schools not just in Victoria, but in Australia. All our students receive a well-rounded and balanced education that incorporates the arts, sport and technology. With the commencement of our building works, we will soon have state of the art, modern facilities to match the standard of educational excellence that we deliver.

But we can only succeed with your help. Sholem is grateful to everyone who donates to our college. We are delighted that you share our vision, ensuring that our students gain “values for a lifetime”.

As we commence our 2018 Annual Appeal, we urge you to please dig deep in support of our unique community. Open your heart to Sholem Aleichem College so we can Make Mine a Mentsh.’

Buildings and facilities fund

By contributing to the building of our new wing, you can make a real difference to the future. To be ready for the start of the 2019 school year, our new wing will provide Sholem with the facilities it needs to remain at the forefront of Jewish education in the Southern hemisphere. This exciting development will deliver new senior classrooms, a cutting-edge Maker Space, innovative Art Room, Discovery Centre that can be used as a kitchen or science lab, new reception and administration space and more. We are also constructing a new playground with activity centres, sensory play and an amphitheatre. There’s sure to be something for everyone!

Scholarships and bursaries fund

For the gift that keeps on giving please consider making an endowment. A named scholarship, or a contribution to our scholarship fund, will help us with continuing to assist families whose children may not otherwise receive a Jewish education. Our dream is to provide a broad and exciting Jewish education to children regardless of their financial situation.

Jewish Education Fund

Empower us to provide our students with the very best Jewish education they can have. Your contributions to this fund are targeted solely at the Jewish Life elements of what we do at Sholem, such as cultural, linguistic, or historical activities, programs and events.
