Grant a sec­ond big win for kindy

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE good news con­tin­ues for Isis Com­mu­nity Pre-School and Kinder­garten.

Just weeks after Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil con­firmed a lease of land that will al­low the early learn­ing cen­tre to ex­pand, Mem­ber for Bur­nett Stephen Ben­nett an­nounced the kindy would re­ceive a grant of $29,000.

The grant, which was re­leased thanks to the most re­cent round of the Gambling Com­mu­nity Ben­e­fit Fund, will go to­wards help­ing the kindy re­place the en­trance and foyer deck.

“It’s a real boost for the kindy, which is desperately in need of re­pair and re­fur­bish­ment,” Mr Bur­nett said.

“The kindy has a very im­por­tant role in the com­mu­nity and has sup­ported fam­i­lies of young chil­dren with preschool ac­tiv­i­ties for over 50 years.

“It’s great to see th­ese funds go­ing to­wards such a wor­thy group.”

The next round will close at the end of Novem­ber.
