As part of Education Week, Federal Member for Calare Andrew Gee is encouraging schools in the Calare electorate to apply for the Local Schools Community Fund.
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 is open for applications and I’d encourage all schools in Calare to think about what they could do with a share of the funds,” Mr Gee said.
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 the Member for Calare. Projects could include small-scale extensions or classroom refurbishments, new computer facilities, mental health and counselling services, playground equipment, library resources, or sports facilities.
