Better internet for Clarence and Richmond Valley schools

Thirty-five public schools in the Clarence and Richmond Valleys are set to get fast wi-fi under a new Government program, Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis has announced.
“The NSW Liberals and Nationals Government is investing $46 million over the next four years to deliver wireless connectivity to 900 regional schools including 35 here in the Clarence and Richmond Valleys,” Mr Gulaptis said.
“One of the dividends of having the Nationals in Government is that we make sure regional people get the same level of service as those in the city insofar as possible, and that starts with school children.”
“The Connecting Country Schools program is about finding the best internet solution for each regional school.”
Once a school has been upgraded with the solution, they will be able to apply for additional funds from an innovation fund to maximise the use of the capability within their school and their community.
Eligible schools in the Clarence electorate are: Baryulgil Public School; Broadwater Public School; Casino High School; Casino Public School; Casino West Public School; Chatsworth Island Public School; Copmanhurst Public School; Coraki Public School; Coutts Crossing Public School; Cowper Public School; Dundurrabin Public School; Evans River Community School; Gillwinga Public School; Glenreagh Public School; Grafton High School; Grafton Public School; Gulmarrad Public School; Harwood Island Public School; Hernani Public School; Iluka Public School; Induna School; Lawrence Public School; Leeville Public School; Maclean High School; Maclean Public School; Manifold Public School; Nymboida Public School; Palmers Island Public School; Rappville Public School; South Grafton High School; South Grafton Public School; Stratheden Public School; Tucabia Public School; Ulmarra Public School; Westlawn Public School; Woodburn Public School; Wooli Public School; and Yamba Public School.
