The Greatwood School Carlow will be planted with yew saplings in the first half of 2020

A school carol is an award given to students who demonstrate exceptional achievement in academic achievement and academic skills in a classroom setting.

Yew saples, also known as red maple saplings, are native to the Greatwood area of south-east Victoria and were first planted by Charles Carlow in 1890.

“Greatwood School Carslow is a unique program, as it is one of the few schools in Australia that has a dedicated program for students with special needs,” Carlow said.

The program is open to all students with a diagnosis of learning disabilities and includes support for school activities and social activities.

Students with learning disabilities can choose from a variety of different programs, including a special interest program, a social skills program and a vocational program.

Last year, the school received $4.8 million in federal funding for the program, which has been supported by the Department of Education, the Australian Research Council, the Victorian Government, the University of Melbourne and the Tasmanian Government.
