Staff and kids at Cambooya’s C&K Community Kindergarten will benefit from new and improved facilities at the Centre with the help of a grant from Round 4 of the Coalition Government’s Stronger Communities program.
Federal Member for Groom John McVeigh joined the team at C&K Cambooya Community Kindergarten today to announce the funding and inspect some of the work to be undertaken.
“C&K Cambooya Community Kindergarten does a great job caring for children and helping to prepare kids for entry into the school system ” he said.
“The grant will help improve some of the internal facilities including bathrooms and floor coverings that were not of a high enough standard for a modern kindergarten.”
Dr McVeigh said the kindergarten was an important part of the local community operating for up to 40 weeks a year.
“Cambooya is lucky to have a team of passionate educators at C&K Community Kindergarten that are so focused on helping kids develop essential skills in preparation for school and to support them throughout their lives ” he said.
Dr McVeigh said the Stronger Communities program provided much-needed support for local community organisations across the country.
“I am very proud to be able to support local organisations in the Groom electorate like C&K Cambooya Community Kindergarten. The people that make up these important organisations work tirelessly for the benefit of the wider community and I am truly grateful for what they do.”
