Constituency Question: Inclusive Equipment Grants
Ms SPENCE (Yuroke) (12:47): (1942) My constituency question is to the Minister for Education. What information can the minister provide on the rollout of the inclusive equipment grants awarded to schools in the Yuroke electorate? Late last year the government announced that four local schools would benefit from more than $68 000 in funding through the equipment boost for schools initiative, including Willmott Park Primary, Craigieburn Secondary, Mount Ridley College and Westmeadows Primary. These schools will receive a variety of resources ranging from amplification equipment and adjustable furniture to C-Pen Readers and games. There are many families in my community who have children with additional learning needs, and I know that they will greatly appreciate any additional information that the minister is able to provide on the rollout of this funding.
