“Community Garden”


Thanks to the ClubGRANTS scheme, Our Lady of Dolours Catholic Primary School is able to build a $22K community fruit and vegetable garden. The garden will be built on the school’s grounds, located on the strip of land facing immediately onto Ferguson Lane.


The latest round of funding was announced by Chatswood RSL Club at a Presentation Ceremony held at the Club on Wednesday 30th August.


“On behalf of Our Lady of Dolours Catholic Primary School community, I would like to thank Chatswood RSL Club for providing this generous support that will provide fabulous opportunities for us to connect with the local community in a remarkably unique way. The funding will be used to build several substantial culturally themed garden beds. These gardens will be in ‘arms reach’ for anyone in the community to simply enjoy. The gardens will facilitate opportunities for the school community of parents/friends to ‘connect’ and maintain the gardens, and invaluable learning experiences will be afforded to the students regarding sustainability and environmental learning/teaching outcomes,” said Philip Ledlin, School Principal, Our Lady of Dolours Catholic Primary School.


“Giving back to the community is a huge part of who we are as a club, and we’re proud that this ClubGRANTS funding helps groups like this continue to do the great work that they do,” said Tony Snowsill, CEO, Chatswood RSL Club.


Clubs across the state have provided more than $1 billion in funding since the inception of the ClubGRANTS scheme, making it one of the largest and most effective grants programs in Australia.


The ClubGRANTS program is made possible through the support of ClubsNSW, the NSW Government and local clubs. Further detail about ClubGRANTS can be found at www.clubsnsw.com.au/clubgrants
