Local History Grant for Beaumaris Primary School

August 20, 2015

As the Member for Sandringham I takes the opportunity to congratulate Beaumaris Primary School on being awarded $9,960 funding under the Local History Grants Program for their project Retracing Beaumaris Primary School’s lost history – a preservation, publication and heritage panel.

The funding allocation will be used for: the purchase of archival storage materials; preparation and publication of a book celebrating the 100 year history of the school aimed at children, purchase of display cabinets; and the production of ten interpretive panels installed throughout the school grounds.

I wish Beaumaris Primary School success in completing this important project.

The Local History Grants Program is managed by the Public Record Office Victoria. A full list of grant recipients and further information on the Program can be found at www.prov.vic.gov.au.
