The Bellbird Public School P&C Association has received a $5,000 grant towards water bottle refill station at Bellbird Public School thanks to the NSW Government as part of the $37.2 million Local Small Commitments Allocation Program (LSCA).

The Local Small Commitments Allocation Program provides grants for a wide range of projects which will enhance local communities and provide benefits to people across each of the 93 electorates in NSW. It consists of over 600 small community projects, ranging from capital works, services and programs, events, supplies and equipment, charitable donations, and playground and park upgrades.

The funds delivered as part of the Local Small Commitments Allocation program will provide students, staff, and visitors with cool fresh drinking water.

Water bottle refill stations will be installed in the playground in easily accessible areas so students and staff can access fresh water all day. This will be beneficial to the health and well-being of all the children and people who come to the school by providing clean, fresh drinking water.

The NSW Government has committed funds to the program which will help small local projects and programs that strengthen communities and provide improvements at a local level, making NSW an even better place to live.

Member for Cessnock, Mr Clayton Barr said: 

“This is a fantastic outcome for Bellbird Public School P&C and Bellbird Public School community.”

“It is great to be part of the project to make sure students, teachers and visitors can enjoy ice-cold water anytime but especially on those hot summer days.”

“I am always excited when funding is made available for projects big and small across the Cessnock Electorate.”
