Grants for community groups and schools in Moncrieff
30 Nov | '2020
The strength of our local schools and community groups is vital for the welfare and success of Australians, of all ages and circumstances.
For Moncrieff, I seek to highlight some of the groups and schools I have visited over the last two weeks, for the good work they do. They are all very deserving of the support they have received from the Federal Government.
New Beginnings received a Communities Environment Program grant of $20,000 for its Youth Marine Conservation Program held at Sea World.
St Kevin’s Catholic Primary School at Benowa has received a $5,000 Local Schools Community Fund grant for their habitat signs.
The Surfers Paradise Baseball Club have upgraded their batting cages and safety equipment, having received a Stronger Communities Grant of $5,454 and a Volunteer Grant of $1,350
Benowa State High School, is improving sun-safety for their students with a Local Schools Community Fund grant of $5,000 they have used to purchase new covered outdoor seating for students to enjoy at breaks.
Southport Soccer club have upgraded their changeroom facilities thanks to a $5000 Stronger Communities grant.
Last but certainly not least, is Surfers Paradise State School who received a Stronger Communities Fund grant for $5,000 for musical instruments. Close to my heart Mr Deputy Speaker.
All of these groups play a role in making our communities healthy, happy and successful. Well done and keep up the good work. A special thankyou to the professionals and volunteers involved for their dedication to our Moncrieff community.
