 “The Coalition Government recognises the important role that schools play in our community and that’s why we’re funding small projects that will make a big difference at our local schools,” Jason Wood said.

“The school communities in La Trobe nominated the projects they most wanted and the Coalition Government stepped up with funding support through the Coalition Government’s $30.2 million Local Schools Community Fund.

“This is additional investment on top of the Coalition Government’s record funding of $310 billion for schools.

“These local school projects will go a long way in helping our students and the local school community in La Trobe when they are completed next year.”
