Durack schools invited to share in new funding

New equipment, building projects or additional targeted support could soon be on the way for schools across the Durack electorate with the Federal Government making up to $200,000 available for projects to benefit local kids’ learning experience.

Federal Member for Durack Melissa Price said the Local Schools Community Fund will offer grants between $1,000 and $20,000 to contribute to a variety of school projects and associated costs.

“The Fund will open for applications on 25 July 2019 and I’d encourage all schools in Durack to think about what they could do with a share of the funds,” she said.

“Schools may lodge one application for each of their campuses, so it’s important that the project identified delivers a real benefit for their local school community.

“For remote schools in the region, they could even use the money toward excursions for their students.”

The Local Schools Community Fund is open to government, Independent and Catholic schools, but eligibility conditions will apply, and proposed projects will be assessed by a committee to be appointed by Ms Price.

Projects could include small-scale extensions or classroom refurbishments, new computer facilities, mental health and counselling services, playground equipment, library resources, or sports facilities.

The Federal Government announced the $30.2 million Local Schools Community Fund in the 2019 Budget.

Applications will be through SchoolsHUB – https://schools.education.gov.au/. Schools may submit one application for up to $20,000 funding for each of their campuses. Applications open on 25 July 2019 and close on 30 September 2019 and projects must be completed by the end of 2020.
