Bonalbo Central School would like to install outdoor fitness equipment. This would provide physical exercise opportunities for students, staff and community members.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced $16,000 to assist with this project.
Mr Hogan said it was important our small rural schools have the same opportunities as those in the city.
“All students will have access to the station during lessons, sport time and lunch breaks,” Mr Hogan said.
“There is also an opportunity for families to access facilities out of school time.”
“Increased physical activity is linked to improving overall health and wellbeing.”
All schools across the electorate were encouraged to apply for this funding to make improvements to their school environment.
This funding program allows individual schools to nominate their own projects that make a big difference to the school community.
The Local Schools Community Fund is open to all schools but eligibility conditions will apply. Schools were able to lodge one application for each of their campuses. For future rounds, visit https://schools.education.gov.au/ to apply.
