Sixteen schools on the Mornington Peninsula will receive a share of $200,000 for improvement works thanks to the Morrison Government’s Local Schools Community Fund
Announced in the 2019 Budget, the $30.2 million Fund delivers $200,000 to each electorate around Australia to benefit and support local kids’ learning experience.
Federal Member for Flinders, the Hon. Greg Hunt MP, said the funding would help each school with capital works to drastically improve students learning experience.
“The Coalition Government recognises the important role that schools play in our community and that’s why we’re funding small projects that will make a big difference at our local schools,” Minister Hunt said.
“The school communities on the Mornington Peninsula nominated the projects they most wanted and the Coalition Government stepped up with funding support through the Coalition Government’s $30.2 million Local Schools Community Fund.
“This will see schools like Mornington Special Development School improve learning outcomes for local students and Flinders Christian College assist students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
“This is additional investment on top of the Coalition Government’s record funding of $310 billion for schools.
“These local school projects will go a long way in helping our students and the local school community on the Peninsula when they are completed next year.”
