South Grafton High School would like to improve an underutilised area at the school. They want to create an Aboriginal Learning Circle, with a shaded area, play equipment and seating.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced a $16,000 grant to make this project happen.
Mr Hogan said the area will be great for students, staff and the community.
“This will allow students to learn as a group, build relationships, and preserve cultural knowledge,” Mr Hogan said.
“Outdoor learning spaces have a positive impact on health and wellbeing.”
“These spaces also improve children’s social skills and behaviour.”
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.
