$100 spon­sor­ship for schools

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ROBERT MUIR

All Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil area’s 13 pri­mary and sec­ondary schools are to re­ceive a $100 spon­sor­ship for an an­nual award de­ter­mined by each school.

“While this is a great ini­tia­tive, it is some­thing coun­cil has spon­sored only on an as-re­quested/ad hoc ba­sis,” coun­cil’s Gen­eral Man­ager Adrian But­ler said.

“It is con­sid­ered that this ap­proach should be re­placed by a more for­mal and con­sis­tent ar­range­ment.”

Coun­cil will ad­vise each school ac­cord­ingly, and at the sug­ges­tion of Cr Bron­wyn Thomas, will stip­u­late guide­lines which would in­clude com­mu­nity spirit and integrity.

“This is an ex­cel­lent ini­tia­tive by Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil,” she said.

At their monthly meet­ing on June 26, coun­cil­lors unan­i­mously agreed on com­mit­ting coun­cil to a to­tal an­nual amount of $1300.
