Shaded area coming to Texas Kindergarten

December 12, 2019

Maranoa MP David Littleproud today announced that the Texas Kindergarten will make use of $3100 – secured through the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Programme – to install shade cover in its backyard.

“The Texas Kindergarten has been going strong for 61 years and I’m sure the staff and parents all agree that a shaded outdoor area will bring plenty of opportunities for learning and fun to the kindergartners,” Mr Littleproud said.

“The kindergarten will use the shaded area to conduct activities and won’t have to worry so much about the effects of heat or the Sun.

“I’m a firm believer in bringing people together and improving community services across Maranoa because it has a positive flow-on effect on our quality of life and how we support each other – making improvements to the Texas Kindergarten reflects this.

“Regional communities are the heart of this country and I want to make sure that small capital projects are funded and the community gets exactly what it needs.”

Round 5 of the Stronger Communities Programme has seen $150,000 in Federal Government funding made available to Maranoa community groups.

Project grants range from $2500 to $20,000 to help bolster rural communities.
