Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced a $20,000 grant for a new Digital Literacy program at Yamba Public School.
“This is about making sure our students get the support and skills they need for the future,” he said.
“Congratulations to Yamba Public School which has been selected from almost 1800 applications for this funding which goes to show the potential of their project.
“I’m looking forward to seeing how this project helps Yamba Public School build the digital skills of their students and sparks an interest in broader important fields like science, technology, engineering and mathematics.”
“It is great to see local schools engaging with cutting edge technology and ensuring our young students are well-equipped for the future.
“I encourage all schools in our community to apply for the next round of funding which opens soon.
“We’re committed to ensuring that each student, no matter where they live in Australia, has a strong knowledge of STEM.
