A Shorten Labor Government will provide $50,000 towards a nature play space for the Seaford Rise Disability Unit.
At this election there is a clear choice for voters: Labor’s commitment to invest in public schools, or the Liberals’ $14 billion cuts.
The Disability Unit currently supports 15 students aged 5 to 12 who have intellectual disabilities.
The unit was identified as needing improvements to fulfil its potential as an effective learning and play area for students.
A plan for a nature play space was facilitated by Occupational Therapy students from the University of South Australia, with collaboration from staff, students, parents and caregivers, and the wider community.
The multi-sensory environmental area aims to provide physical, cognitive, social and emotional benefits for students, as well as acting as a retreat.
This announcement is on top of the extra $660,000 Seaford Rise Primary School will receive for teaching and learning in the first three years of a Shorten Labor Government.
Schools across the electorate of Kingston will be $23.7 million better off under Labor.
Labor will invest an extra $14 billion into Australia’s public schools to give all children the opportunity to reach their full potential, no matter where they live, or how much their parents earn.
The extra funding will mean more individual attention for students and more help with the basics such as reading, writing, maths and science.
After six years of Liberal cuts and chaos, our united Labor team is ready.
