Tanya Davies MP today visited Wallacia Public School to have a look at the school’s newly constructed electronic noticeboard, which was installed as a part of a $16,977 NSW Government Community Building Partnership grant.
Wallacia Public School Principal Mark Davies, P&C President Jody Smith, along with teachers and students showed Tanya Davies their new electronic sign this morning.
Principal Mark Davies commented that the new noticeboard allowed the school to communicate far more effectively with their community.
Tanya Davies said that she was delighted to visit the school to see the upgrade and meet the students, who have given the project a thumbs up.
“I’m so pleased to hear of the difference that this new notice board is making in communication for this close-knit school community,” said Tanya Davies.
Wallacia Public School was one of 13 successful grant applicants who received a share of $300,000 in the 2014 round of community infrastructure grants.
Submissions have just been completed for 2015 Community Building Partnership funding.
“I’m looking forward to seeing more community groups being able to build the infrastructure and purchase the equipment they need to better serve the wider community,” Tanya Davies said.
