Welcome to the home of Operation Education, a community initiative created to provide year 11 and 12 students in Ipswich with refurbished laptops and/or the internet during COVID-19 and beyond.

While it’s important to get these resources out and into the community ASAP to assist with home-learning during COVID-19, this isn’t just about supporting the city’s young people through the pandemic. It’s about providing opportunities for their future education through the gift of a laptop.

Yes, the laptop will be the student’s to keep. One single donation will increase opportunities for learning, connection and wellbeing for the whole family and will also give more people in the community access to IHF’s virtual programs.

Along with the donated laptops and/or sim cards, IHF will also give each family a Healthy Resource Kit. This kit will highlight the many online resources available to positively contribute to their family’s mental health and physical wellbeing, such as IHF’s Virtual Kids Kitchen and Fit4Life Fitness programs.
