Harwood Island Public School wanted to install new interactive whiteboards in their classrooms. This would allow staff and students to use the latest technology in the lessons.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan announced a $15,500 grant earlier this year to purchase new ICT equipment.
Mr Hogan said it was important our small rural schools have the same opportunities as those in the city.
“It was great to check out these new screens today,” Mr Hogan said.
“The whole community share the use of the school facilities.”
“There is a pre-school program once a week, P&C activities and the grounds are used during the holidays.”
“By having up–to–date ICT equipment, the school can access fantastic educational content.”
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.
