If elected a Labor Government will invest $20,000 to improve the landscaping and safety of the school’s playground.

The school is in the process of trying to fundraise for these safety upgrades and I’m delighted this funding will help it achieve its goal.

Once these upgrades are complete, the students will be able to enjoy their playground in a safer and more sun-smart way.

School playgrounds are the hub of a school – they are a place of fun, of connecting, of enjoying the outdoors – but they need to be safe.

Congratulations to the school’s P&C which has done an amazing job fund raising for this project so far.

Labor believes every Australian child deserves the best start in life, including a great school education and access to facilities.

The past two years have been hard for all Australians. But our kids have suffered a unique loss. Remote learning, isolated from friends, missed events, have turned what should be some of the best years of their lives into a bit of a nightmare.

This announcement is just part of Labor’s commitments to invest in local schools. An Albanese Labor Government will ensure every school reaches its fair funding level, and will deliver $440 million to schools for better ventilation, building upgrades, and mental health support, to help kids bounce back after COVID.
