Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith visited York Public School to announce funding of $20,000.
Stuart Ayres said this funding for York Public School will go towards shade covering for their new sand-pit offering some much-needed relief and protection from the harsh sun.
“It is my pleasure to support York Public School with this funding which I know will benefit the students and the school community.
“Providing students with safe, modern outdoor play spaces helps to create friendships and to promote active lifestyles,” said Stuart Ayres.
A new irrigation system, tank and turf were delivered and completed to enhance the school yard in 2020.
The NSW Government is investing $7.9 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver more than 215 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
