Play equip­ment for New Hope School

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Political News - Hon Matt Kean MP

Mem­ber for Hornsby Matt Kean MP was pleased to pro­vide New Hope School with the funds for new play equip­ment thanks to a Com­mu­nity Build­ing Part­ner­ship grant of $30,000.

The pro­gram as­sists com­mu­nity groups to make up­grades to their fa­cil­i­ties, pur­chase equip­ment or pro­vide es­sen­tial re­pairs. New Hope School is one of 15 com­mu­nity groups who will ben­e­fit from Com­mu­nity Build­ing Part­ner­ship grants from Mr Kean.

“It is with great pride that I am able to as­sist New Hope School to build new play equip­ment for the stu­dents,” Mr Kean said.

“The NSW State Govern­ment is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing funds to com­mu­nity groups for large scale pro­jects like this up­grade at the school,” he said.

New Hope School is within Pa­cific Hills Chris­tian School and caters for stu­dents with a mod­er­ate level of In­tel­lec­tual de­lay or who have an Autism Spec­trum Dis­or­der.

The new play equip­ment will re­place the veg­gie and herb gar­den which will be moved to an­other lo­ca­tion within the school.

Mr Kean re­cently vis­ited New Hope with Prin­ci­pal Dr Boyce to speak to the stu­dents about the new equip­ment.

“I met with Finlay and she is happy to hear there will be new play equip­ment for her and her friends to en­joy ev­ery lunchtime,” Mr Kean said.
