The thriving Bonville Public School community is set to benefit from a $34,642 grant from the NSW Nationals in the state government.
Nationals Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh has congratulated the Bonville Public School P&C Association on its successful application under the NSW Government’s 2021 Community Building Partnership Program.
Mr Singh said the funding was fantastic news for the teachers, staff, students, and parents at Bonville Public School.
“The Bonville Public School P&C Association has been a driving force behind the project to provide seating to support the Kids in the Kitchen program,” Mr Singh said.
“This funding means the school community will benefit from seating to participate in the Kids in the Kitchen program and the lunch and recess breaks.
“Kids in the Kitchen encourages years 5 and 6 children to work in the canteen and to cook, and once a month they cook a meal.
“This grassroots funding will directly help create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive outcomes for all.”
The NSW Community Building Partnership program has funded more than 16,000 community projects since it commenced in 2009.
