Deputy Prime Minister and Member for Wide Bay Warren Truss says four South Burnett schools in his electorate have signed up to be a part of the Federal Government’s new “Sporting Schools” initiative.
The schools are Goomeri State School P-10, Murgon State School, St Joseph’s Catholic School and Windera State School.
“Sporting Schools is one of the Coalition Government’s cornerstone preventative health programs aimed to improve our children’s health through getting more kids involved in physical activity,” Mr Truss said.
“Being involved in this new program will expand sporting opportunities for children before, during and after school hours at Wide Bay primary schools.
“Sporting Schools is designed to deliver sports in line with local schools’ needs and ultimately to get the children active, engaged and having fun through sport, more often.”
