The Member for Barker Tony Pasin has announced a number of schools in Barossa have been awarded funding under the Morrison Government’s $30.2 million Local Schools Community Fund.

“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,” Mr Pasin said

Projects funded in Barossa include:

  • $20,000 for Faith Lutheran College to assist with the upgrade of 2 classrooms in the music and creative arts learning faculties of the College with the installation of computer or ICT facilities/ equipment.
  • $6,000 for Keyneton Primary School to purchase 20 new desktop computers for the school. $2,950 for Williamstown Primary School to install an engraved memorial tree sculpture to remember the ‘digger trees’ that were planted on the school grounds in 1915
  • $2,399 for Nurioopta Primary School to add to the safety and wellbeing of their students by purchasing a defibrillator for the school.

“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 Barker when they are completed,” Mr Pasin said.
