KOOYONG SCHOOLS INVITED TO SHARE IN NEW FUNDING

The Morrison Government’s new Local Schools Community Fund will deliver up to $200,000 to schools across Kooyong. The Fund will offer grants between $1,000 and $20,000 to contribute
to a variety of school projects and associated costs.

With 55 schools and over 35,000 students in Kooyong, the Local Schools Community Fund may assist in the purchase of new equipment, building projects or additional targeted support to
benefit our local students’ learning experience.

The Fund is now open and will close on 30 September 2019. Projects must be completed by the end of 2020.

Schools can submit one application for funding per campus so it’s important that the project delivers a real benefit for the local school community.

The Local Schools Community Fund is open to Government, Independent and Catholic schools.

Proposed projects will be assessed by a local consultative committee.

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

Schools may submit one application for up to $20,000 funding for each of their campuses.

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/ and close on 30 September 2019.
