    Biggera Waters State School Safer Grants Funding

    Students at Biggera Waters State School can look forward to a safer school environment with a funding boost from the Suncorp Safer Streets Grant program.

    State Member for Broadwater, Verity Barton MP, and the Minister for Police, Fire and Emergency Services, the Honourable Jack Dempsey MP today announced that Biggera Waters State School P&C Association have been successful in their application for funding from the Suncorp Safer Streets Grant program. They have been awarded $9,966.

    This money will be used to install security cameras at the school to reduce incidents of property crime, vandalism, unauthorised access and reduce the fear of crime among staff, students and visitors.

    “This is fantastic news for the local school community,” Miss Barton said. “This money will go a long way to ensuring the staff, students and grounds of Biggera Waters State School will feel and be safer.”

    “I congratulate the P&C for their work in getting this grant and thank Suncorp for their support of this great school. The Can-Do LNP Government is committed to ensuring Queensland is the safest place to live, work and raise a family and we’re proud to support programs such as this one which promote safety in our community.”

    The grants, which range from $1,000 to $10,000, are available to help local communities develop and implement projects that improve road safety and help reduce crime and fear of crime in Queensland.
