Government flood funding washes out to local school

STUDENTS at Murwillumbah's Mount St Patrick Primary School will benefit from funding for flood affected communities.

They will share in up to $1.47 million extra funding to help them get the help they need to successfully get on with their schooling.

Member for Richmond, Justine Elliot said the funding of $11,000 was good news for the region, which will provide chaplaincy and student welfare services to support students at Mount St Patrick Primary School.

"This school has been seriously affected by floods, so we're making sure that students at Mount St Patrick Primary School get all the help they need to continue their studies and achieve their best," Mrs Elliot said.

"This funding means Chaplains and Student Welfare Workers will have more time available to support students in this school.

"After all, our local schools are at the heart of community life and this extra money to help schools recover is an important investment this Government is making to help communities recover and rebuild."
