Alstonville High School would like to construct a mountain bike track on the school grounds.
The new track would enable students to participate in regular physical activity and develop their skills.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said this funding would allow mountain biking to be included in the school curriculum.
“The trail will be designed for beginning riders who are new to the sport and also for those more experienced riders,” Mr Hogan said.
“It was great to join members of the school community to announce $10,000 for this project.”
“Students and parents have volunteered to build, maintain and run the program.”
“This program will promote healthy and physical activity. This will improve school retention and engagement.”
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.
