Complete the Quiz and $1 will be donated to The Smith
Family on your behalf to help those children most in need.
Thank you for completing the Australian Child Poverty Quiz.
Find out the correct answers to the quiz below in yellow:
1. On average, how behind in English and Maths are children living in poverty when compared to their well-off peers at 15yrs old?
2. What, on average, is the weekly budget for a lone parent with two children living in poverty?
3. What are some of the consequences of not finishing Year 12?
Now that we have tested your knowledge, we want you to know that your support is key to helping disadvantaged Australian children to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves.
Together, with The Smith Family you can help us to provide disadvantaged children and young people the support and resources they need to achieve their full potential. Our impact will have a lasting effect on those we help today, and for generations to come.
A member of The Smith Family team will contact you so that we can hopefully support this important cause together. Be sure to keep a watch over your phone to ensure we don’t miss you.
