The community of Berrima Public School will benefit from a cash boost of $291,230 to revitalise their playground under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program, Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman has announced today.

Mrs Tuckerman said the funding will upgrade the sporting facilities and unused playground at Berrima Public School.

Principal Karyn Fitzgerald said the construction of a natural playspace will have many inclusive features designed to meet the needs of children and young people with disabilities.

“The enhancement of sporting facilities will also benefit the whole community by providing a safe and welcoming space to maintain health, fitness and wellbeing.

“Sharing our school’s space creates an opportunity for a powerful hub for community connection, activity, inclusion and celebration”.

Mrs Tuckerman said 48 projects across NSW would share in $6.3 million under the latest round of funding in the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.

These include projects in the areas of sport and recreation, the arts and culture, disaster readiness and community infrastructure.

Disaster-affected communities that have been impacted by floods or fire have been prioritised in this round of funding.

“The NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program funds the construction and upgrade of essential community infrastructure across the state,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

“This much needed cash injection will help regional groups do what they do best in serving their local communities.”

“It is hoped the funding will ignite community spirit and boost participation across the areas of sport and recreation, the arts and cultural activities.”

The NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program is made possible by Clubgrants Category 3, a fund which re-invests profits from gaming machines at registered clubs into community projects.

Since 2015, more than 660 community projects have been awarded $98 million under the funding program.
