Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram 32 schools around Australia, including St Euphemia College, have been awarded with large grants to ensure their security infrastructure is up to scratch. St Euphemia received a check for $323,000 to put towards installing cameras, intercom systems and fencing. Minister for Home Affairs and Justice, Jason Clare, spoke at St Euphemia College, and could see the money was going to a good cause. “Parents have the right to expect their children will be safe at school,” Mr Clare said. “The upgrades will give peace of mind to students and teachers as they get on with their day-to-day learning.” The school will use the money to install CCTV, fencing, and intercom and access control. The schools chosen are some of the country’s most in need and will provide welcome peace of mind to parents and students. The Secure Schools Grant program introduced by the Gillard Government is designed to help to meet the security needs of these government and non-government schools. $15 million has been added to the $20 million already given in 2007 to ensure the program is extended for another three years. That brings the total number of schools benefiting up to 69. $5 million will be given to pre-schools while the further $10 million is secured for schools.
