STUDENTS at St Liborius Primary School will be able to grow a community vegetable garden after receiving a grant as part of the Philmac Project.
The initiative was established by poly fittings manufacturer Philmac with the objective of providing communities with grants to help with water-related projects.
Grant recipients were determined by community voting via Facebook.
School principal Frank Dullard said the school had received a $5000 grant that would be used to establish a community vegetable garden and a new watering system.
“We are really excited about the grant,” he said.
“Grants like these allow us to implement some of our master plan projects and allow for diversity in the way that schools can fund critical elements of the curriculum.”
Mr Dullard said students took part in cooking classes and the garden would allow them to grow their own vegetables to use as ingredients in the kitchen.
Philmac marketing communications and product manager Tom Summons said St Liborius Primary was a worthy recipient of the grant.
