THE Bermagui P&C were thrilled to learn they would receive a boost, via ClubGrants and Bermagui Country Club.
Under the ClubGrants scheme, clubs with an annual net income of more than $1 million distribute revenue to community and sporting groups.
Bermagui Country Club recently announced it would provide $2,400 to the Bermagui School P&C, to upgrade canteen facilities.
“Our P&C committee is delighted with the generosity of the clubs, and without this funding, our canteen would struggle to keep up with demand from our school children,” P&C president Jenny Smith said.
“As a volunteer organisation, the P&C is responsible for helping to improve facilities at school and running the school canteen.
“The money donated to our P&C will improve facilities in our school canteen including a new stainless steel bench-top and a new oven.
“This not only benefits our primary school children but local pre-schoolers as well.”
As part of a “transition to school” program, Bermagui Pre-School children visit school with their lunch orders.
This helps pre-schoolers become more familiar with school, so when they start “big school”, it is a little less intimidating.
“Essentially, this grant helps us meet the needs of our students as well as around 60 other pre-school children for another, we estimate, 20 years,” Mrs Smith said.
Bermagui Country Club general manager Robert Beuzeville visited school to make the presentation.
In presenting the cheque to the P&C, Mr Beuzeville said the donation was an indication of the strong commitment the club has to putting back into the community.
