Cash boost for Berowra schools

Berowra schools are set to receive over $1 billion* over the next decade under the Federal Government’s programme of educational spending.

Federal Member for Berowra, Julian Leeser MP said:“I’m proud to be a part of a Government that will contribute almost $1.12 billion over the next decade to support the 51 schools and over 26,000 students that attend schools across Berowra – it’s an average increase across the electorate of almost $1,300 per student,” Mr Leeser said.

“One of the biggest assets in our community is the quality of our schools and the education they provide our children. This funding will be distributed fairly and transparently according to a needs-based model.

“The funding will be tied to reforms that evidence shows make a real difference to supporting teachers and schools to improve student outcomes.”

The total increase in Federal Government funding for schools in Berowra over the next ten years is $182m.
