More students in Tweed will have a green thumb thanks to the NSW Government’s $10 million Sustainable Schools Grants.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said this investment by the NSW Government will deliver hands-on, sustainable focused projects that link to the NSW Curriculum.

“I am thrilled that schools in Tweed are taking part in this project,” Mr Provest.

 “This is a student-led program that’s focused on improving the environment at schools, and this funding will empower students and school communities to implement projects that will benefit the environment by helping to save energy or water, reduce waste, or improve biodiversity.”

“I look forward to seeing this wonderful project soon come to life at our one of our local schools.”

  • Centaur Public School received $15,000 for a Kitchen, Indigenous and Bush Tucker Garden project.

The third round of grants included programs to improve biodiversity and connect students to nature; resource efficiency (energy, water, waste); environmental education or behavioural change projects; and capacity building projects.

Successful Round 4 grant recipients will be announced during Term 1 2023.
