Ramsgate RSL proudly launched their very first School Grant Program, ‘School Care Project’ supporting local schools to help make our community a better place. A total of $10,000 has been donated to three schools supporting local school projects that fall under Ramsgate’s Care Program Framework; (Community Awareness and Respecting our Environment);
-$5,000 to Carlton Public School ‘Bubbler Project’ for the installation of more water efficient bubblers on their school grounds to help save water
-$3,000 to Kyeemagh Infants Public School ‘Kyeemagh Cares’ for the installation of new community BBQ’s, a Community Street Library and edible Bushfood Garden to help build a strong sense of community.
-$2,000 to St Francis Xavier’s Catholic Primary School ‘STFX Community Market’ to start a Community Swap Market to help recycle unused/unwanted goods . The revenue raised will be used to build a community garden/recycling centre at their school.
The grant values were chosen by diners of Ramsgate RSL as they voted on the project that they wanted the club to support.
“We are so very proud to have been able to assist three fantastic schools and their teachers by providing further resources for their environmental and community projects” said Club President, Sallianne Faulkner “Our local schools are the haven in our community for the development and participation of the minds and vision of our youth”.
Thank you to all our members and guests who dined at The Kitchen By Mike’s Grill or Zen restaurant and took the time to vote for their favourite school project.
