Ramsgate RSL Club is launching its first school grant program, the ‘School Care Project’ supporting local schools to help make the community a better place.

A total of $10,000 will be donated to three schools within a 15km radius of the Club, supporting local school projects that fall under Ramsgate’s Care Program Framework; Community Awareness and Respecting our Environment.

“We are calling on applications from local primary and high schools and would love to hear what projects they have in the pipeline whether it be sustainability or community focused” the club’s Commercial Manager, Nicole Heinrich said.

“This is a great opportunity for schools to share an idea they may have had on a project, but couldn’t get off the ground simply due to funding restrictions”.

Ramsgate RSL Memorial Club president Sallianne Faulkner said, “Our local schools are the haven in our community for the development and participation of the minds and vision of our youth.

“At Ramsgate RSL, we are proud to assist our terrific teachers by providing further resources for their environmental and community projects.”

Applications opened February 1 and are due by March 15.

A judging panel consisting of Club personnel and also Rockdale MP Steve Kamper will

choose the three successful schools that will be open for voting amongst club restaurant diners to determine the grant value.

“We are giving patrons the opportunity to vote on the local school that they believe are doing great things in our community” Nicole said.

“We want our whole community to get involved.”
