FAMILIES IN MANLY SET TO BENEFIT FROM NEW PRESCHOOL PLACES
Waitlists for early childhood education in Manly will ease, with the NSW Government today providing funding for additional spaces at a local preschool through its Start Strong Capital Works Grants program.
Member for Manly James Griffin said North Harbour Children’s Centre preschool in Balgowlah is one of the early childhood education services to receive a major capital grant, which aims to increase the number of community preschool places in areas of need and demand across NSW.
MANLY SCHOOLS SET TO SHINE
Schools in Manly are benefiting from improvements in their classrooms and reductions in their power bills thanks to the NSW Government’s LED Lighting Upgrade Program.
The $157.8 million program, launched in October 2020 as a stimulus response to the COVID-19 pandemic, will see fluorescent lights replaced with more energy efficient LED lights in primary and high schools across NSW.
Member for Manly James Griffin said the NSW Liberals and Nationals Government’s Lighting Upgrade Program is not only improving schools but also supporting jobs in metro areas.
ABORIGINAL LANGUAGES REVITALISED IN NSW SCHOOLS
Students in Manly will soon be able to learn from the highest quality Aboriginal languages syllabus in the country with the release of a new Aboriginal Languages syllabus.
Local Member for Manly James Griffin said NSW is proudly home to more than 35 Aboriginal Language groups, and more than 100 dialects of those languages.
