Recently I announced the successful ‘My Community Project’ in Epping. Thanks to huge local community support, Beecroft Public School P&C has been awarded a grant of $180,000 for an all-weather covered outdoor learning area.
I visited Beecroft Public School recently to see for myself how this project will benefit the school and I was happy to meet some very excited students and equally excited parents. The all-weather cover will be built over the existing multi-purpose court, giving students a place to play and keep dry when raining, and protection from the sun in warmer months.
The ‘My Community Project’ program was made possible by the NSW Generations Fund, a sovereign wealth fund that helps keep debt at sustainable levels whilst sharing returns with local communities.
Well done to the Beecroft P&C for mustering terrific support for this great project, particularly President Ben McSweeney, Vice-Presidents Lisa Yen and Adam Fusca and P&C Secretary Melanie Hogan. Congratulations also to School Principal Tanya Rose.
I’d like to thank all the applicants and sponsors that participated in the ‘My Community Project’ in Epping and especially the voters – Epping having the highest number of voters of any electorate in NSW.
