The Manly community are one of more than 50 across NSW to benefit from funding to commemorate veterans across the state.
Member for Manly James Griffin MP and Minister for Veterans Affairs David Elliott today announced Saltwater Veterans would receive $1500 from the latest round of the the Anzac Community Grants Program.
“More than $56,000 will be provided to a range of projects that commemorate and educate NSW communities about the service and sacrifices of current and former military servicemen and servicewomen,” Mr Elliott said.
7 Manly creators and innovators from the 2021 HSC will be celebrated alongside a selection of their top classmates, in one of eight HSC Showcases.
Each year, the HSC Showcases display a selection of top major works of students across visual arts, performing arts and technologies.
James Griffin MP said this is a great opportunity for local Manly young people, to have their achievements, creativity and innovation shared with the local and broader community.
“Our local young people should be so proud of what they have achieved – not only completing the HSC in a year like no other, but producing work of such high quality,” Mr Griffin said.
“To see their work up on display should fill them with pride and confidence – it is no small feat to be included in an HSC Showcase.”
The NSW Government’s successful ‘Let’s Do This’ advertising campaign is expanding to encourage everyone 16 years and older to get their COVID-19 booster shot.
Member for Manly James Griffin MP said the updated campaign will reinforce the importance of getting a COVID-19 booster to reduce the risk of severe illness and to help protect communities.
“This campaign celebrates the resilience and strength of the NSW community and encourages everyone aged 16 years and older to get their booster shot three months after their second dose,” Mr Griffin said.
