Local Schools Receive $140k Grant Funding

Matt Kean MP at Cowan Public School

Schools started the year like any other only to find themselves, for the first time in our history, teaching the vast majority of their students from home.

Member for Hornsby Matt Kean thanks our Principals, teachers and support staff for all their hard work and is thrilled to announce two schools will share in over $140,000 in grants to upgrade the facilities used by students.

Cowan Public School P&C Association was awarded $55,908 and Asquith Boys High School P&C Association will receive $94,612.

Cowan Public School will redevelop the school oval by laying artificial turf, making it a safer play space for the children and will include a running track. Asquith Boys High School, which this year celebrates 60 years, has built a modular classroom which is used as a study pod.

“These are two of our amazing schools in Hornsby and I am so pleased we are able to help them upgrade their grounds with these significant grants,” Mr Kean said.

“Right now restrictions don’t allow me to go on site at our schools but I look forward in the future to seeing the work done at Asquith Boys and Cowan Public School,” Mr Kean said.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every Hornsby school for the amazing work they have done to support our students through this COVID-19 crisis.” Mr Kean said
