Sylvania Heights Public School will receive $30,000 under the Before and After School Care Fund.

Miranda MP Eleni Petinos made the announcement this week.

The NSW government created the $20 million fund to help deliver up to 45,000 additional Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) places.

It means primary schools are given cash to help with the cost of establishing a new or expanding an existing OSHC service.

Sylvania Heights Public School’s before and after school care will put the money towards the refurbishment of its flexible learning space and iPads for students.

The service provides care for 120 students but will expand to 150 after the renovation.

Funding will also be used to resurface the asphalt in the school carpark. 

The government has allocated $330 million across two years to address priority maintenance needs in schools, including $4.5 million for schools in the Miranda area.
