Trustees at their November board meeting considered grant applications for funding initiatives from the four local education providers.   The education funding pool available this financial year is $61,200.

Kuranui College received $25,200 for their Wananga / Academy learning programme and Greytown Primary School applied for funding for their junior playground development and received $24,500.

Applications from the early childhood centres for the $11,500 contestable fund saw the Kindergarten awarded $6,500 for their “woodwork for young learners programme” and $5,000 approved for Greytown Early Years to help cover costs associated with their “explorers and mini explorers outdoor programme” and “professional learning and development” requirements.

This takes the total amount granted to the four local education providers over the last 13 years to $926,524.
