THE renovation of classrooms at Life Education NSW's Colyton head office is complete, made possible by a $28,000 state government Community Building Partnership grant.
The 2013 grant provided funds to assist Life Education NSW to deliver its programs in teaching primary school aged children to respect their bodies, be healthy and active and to make wise choices in life through drug and alcohol education.
Mulgoa MP Tanya Davies (pictured) recently inspected the renovations and tried the new interactive video screen, which allows the tutor or students to interact with video programming in real time.
"I am delighted to see modern technology put to great use in assisting our younger generation to be educated on important social issues such as drug and alcohol education," Mrs Davies said.
Life Education NSW chief executive Jay Bacik added:
"Financial support from the Community Building Partnership grant was so important for Life Education NSW because it allowed us to improve and upgrade our classrooms at Colyton, not only with new carpets but also with the latest technology, essential to ensuring all children receive the highest quality program possible."
Applications for the 2014 Community Building Partnership grants close this Friday (July 18).
"I encourage all community based organisations to apply for funding," Mrs Davies said.
