Cash boost to give kindy kids a good start

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

BECK Street Kin­der­garten has landed a much-needed wind­fall from the State Gov­ern­ment to help with main­te­nance work.

Mem­ber for Con­damine Pat Weir at­tended the kin­der­garten last Fri­day to an­nounce the $22,500 grant.

Mr Weir said he was proud to sup­port the kindy be­cause he knew it was a wor­thy re­cip­i­ent.

“Kindy is the first step of ed­u­ca­tion and to come out and see the fel­low­ship here is great,” Mr Weir said.

“It’s a beau­ti­ful lit­tle group.

“They ap­plied for the fund­ing and I was more than happy to sup­port them.”

Beck Street Kin­der­garten com­mit­tee mem­ber Su­san Sul­li­van said the fund­ing was badly needed.

“There’s plenty of work we need to get done so this fund­ing is great,” Mrs Sul­li­van said.

“Our plumb­ing is from 1965, we need to make the floor level, we need wiring done and we want new air-con­di­tion­ing.

“We’re very ex­cited for the com­mit­tee and the par­ents to se­cure this fund­ing.”

The an­nounce­ment came on the day the kin­der­garten was host­ing its an­nual athletics day, with par­ents and sib­lings present.
