Tweed parents can now access $150 worth of vouchers through the Premier’s Back to School NSW program, giving a boost to household budgets through savings on textbooks, uniforms, stationery and other school essentials.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest MP, said Summer holidays are a good time for families to start buying supplies for the new school year and the voucher program would help cover those costs.

“The NSW Government wants to make sure every child attending school has the opportunity to strive for their best when they are in the classroom and providing access to essential items for learning is our priority,” Mr Provest said.

“Parents, guardians and carers, including foster carers, can apply for three $50 Premier’s Back to School NSW Vouchers per child, which can be used at registered businesses towards items including bags, shoes, prescribed textbooks and lunchboxes.

“The end of year is an expensive time for many households with Christmas and family holidays to pay for which is why the NSW Government is investing $193 million into the vouchers to help ease those cost of living pressures.”

Applying for the vouchers is simple and can be done in a matter of minutes using the Service NSW app, on the phone or by visiting a Service Centre.

Parents and carers can search for registered businesses in their local area by using the online Business Finder Tool and can use multiple vouchers in one transaction.
