"In the last six months I have visited many small schools that are united by a special community spirit in joining together to raise much needed funds for various projects.

"Local schools require this type of funding for maintenance programs and the above allocations will assist in meeting some of the many priorities that each and every school currently has," concluded Thomas George.
