Pretty Beach Public School is one of more than 1,300 schools across the country to benefit from a share of $32 million in grants to upgrade school infrastructure and equipment.
The school will receive $25,000 to purchase or upgrade ICT equipment, including for laptops and tablets, and is one of six schools in the Robertson electorate which will receive funding.
The funding is part of a $250 million commitment to improve school infrastructure and projects, including:
- New or improved outdoor learning areas
- New or upgraded air conditioning
- Better ventilation; and
- New tablets and laptops.
All schools across the country were invited to apply for the funding and projects were assessed by the Department of Education and selected based on need.
More than half the schools receiving funding are in regional or remote areas.
