Education program

Invictus Games Sydney 2018 is creating long term social impact by educating the community as a whole about the nature of service and the role of the military, and promoting how to build resilience through an active and socially connected lifestyle. The program will be aimed at different sectors of the Australian community across generations including the education sector. We’re happy to have introduced their program to the Independent Schools sector through our partnerships with the Association of Independent Schools NSW and the Association of School Business Administrators.

Aon’s partnership with Invictus Games Sydney 2018 complements our partnership with Paralympic Games Gold Medallist Curtis McGrath OAM, an Invictus Games Sydney 2018 Ambassador.
