Record $1 bil­lion for Berowra schools

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Local Politics | Julian Leeser Mp -

As chil­dren right across Berowra are re­turn­ing to school at the end of Jan­uary, it is worth re­flect­ing on the record in­vest­ment the Mor­ri­son Gov­ern­ment is in­vest­ing in Berowra schools.

The Gov­ern­ment is in­vest­ing a record $1 bil­lion in our schools over the next decade.

Na­tion­ally, funding per stu­dent for all schools, gov­ern­ment, Catholic and in­de­pen­dent, will con­tinue to in­crease, grow­ing on av­er­age by 4 per cent each year over 2017 to 2029.

This funding com­mit­ment is in ad­di­tion to the grants pro­grams such as Stronger Com­mu­ni­ties Fund and the Lo­cal Schools Com­mu­nity Fund that are en­abling many schools in our elec­torate to de­liver small cap­i­tal projects to make schools more ac­ces­si­ble and more equipped to do their job.

I am de­lighted to be part of a gov­ern­ment that has pri­ori­tised in­vest­ing in Berowra schools.

Our chil­dren de­serve a qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and we want schools to have the sup­port they need to lift out­comes for our stu­dents and equip them for the fu­ture.

I am very proud of Berowra’s schools and once again stu­dents from our schools have per­formed at the high­est level in NSW.
