Sylvanvale 75th Year Update

Sylvanvale 75th Year Update Sylvanvale CEO planting a tree at Garden House

Sylvanvale’s 75th year celebrations are going strong! 

Site Visits 

Our Executive Team and senior managers are currently visiting all of our participants and staff at each ofour 43 sites, bringing special Sylvanvale 75th anniversary cookies and planting a commemorative Australian native tree.  

We are extremely grateful to Sutherland Shire Council for donating the stunning trees to us. The very catalyst for the existence of Sylvanvale was a survey conducted by the Sutherland Shire Council early on in 1947, which showed that at that time there were no supports in the local community for children with disability and their families.

Photo Gallery 

We were thrilled to launch a photo gallery on our website in February 2023, to share memories from the past and help preserve our proud history for the future.   

If you’ve not already done so, we would love you to add to our gallery by submitting your own Sylvanvale-related photos online. If your photo is published on the page, you’ll receive a 75th anniversary edition mini robot and packet of Coriander, Marigold and Sunflower seeds.* Hurry! You have until the end of March 2023 to submit your photos, with the gift giveaway finishing at 11:59pm on Friday 31 March 2023. 

Thank you for continuing to make Sylvanvale’s 75th year such a memorable one!
