I congratulate the following schools in the Ballarat and Bendigo electorates which have received funding under the Morrison Liberal Government’s Local Schools Community Fund.

A total of $30.2 million has been made available to provide all schools; government, Catholic and independent, with funding for small scale projects to meet priorities identified by schools and their communities.

This is a major win for these school communities and I am delighted that the Liberals are providing such valuable support.
