Credit Union SA and Mix102.3’s Max & Ali in the Morning are excited to announce they're bringing Back to School Fridays back for 2024!

Thanks to the partnership, Credit Union SA and Mix102.3 will visit eight schools in 2024 for mornings full of fun and activities, and it is all kicking off with a special one before the end of the year on Friday, 24 November.

Credit Union SA CEO, Todd Roberts, is thrilled about the partnership and believes there is a strong alignment for a cause close to both businesses.

“We are so excited to support this initiative of shining a light on the local education sector. As a South Australian organisation, we want to invest in our state’s education community for the benefit of all South Australians, from students through to teachers and families - the whole school community.”

“Our partnership with Mix102.3’s Back to School Fridays couldn’t be a better fit, with our strong focus on the education sector, the team is thrilled to give schools this great experience for their communities,” Todd continued.

Mix102.3 Content Director Stephen Werner said, “We are so excited to collaborate with Credit Union SA. Together, we will be visiting eight South Australian schools across 2024 and bring the joy and fun of Max and Ali in the Morning to communities across Adelaide!”

“Back to School Fridays will enable students and discover the big stories in the local schooling community which is so important, and it’s great to see that Credit Union SA has similar values which is what makes this partnership so great,” Stephen explained.

The partnership follows Credit Union SA’s long history of supporting South Australian education, including the recent announcement of the School Impact Program, a commitment to giving school communities over $1 million in vital funds across the next ten years.

Todd continued, “We have just announced the School Impact Program which gives funding to schools across the state to enable educational facilities to bring forward their investments into school grounds, as well as learning facilities and equipment.”

Schools across Adelaide can apply for the Credit Union SA Back to School Fridays to visit their community in 2024 by completing the application on the Mix102.3 website here.
