The ‘Get Set, Go’ Aboriginal Children’s Backpack program 

Aboriginal children are supported in a healthy start to preschool or school with a colourful, high quality backpack. Backpacks are filled with handy items including a water bottle, lunchbox and sun hat.The backpacks are ordered through early childhood service providers for Aboriginal children who are transitioning to preschool or school.
