Made in the shade with Southbrook Central State School
We’re proud to give back to our communities that are home to Inland Rail. Last month we helped Southbrook Central State School plant for the future with an Inland Rail Community Sponsorships and Donations program grant.
Located in a small farming town 30km south-west of Toowoomba, Southbrook Central State School (SCSS) recently applied for funding to replace and irrigate trees lost in the drought.
SCSS Parents and Citizens President, Katherine Scobie said the school, which has 57 students enrolled, used the Inland Rail Community Sponsorships and Donations program grant to fund trench digging and items required for an underground irrigation system linked to the school’s bore.
“Last weekend our school community gathered together to plant and irrigate 30 trees which will provide shade and shelter to our students on the sports oval in years to come,” she said.
“The trees will also provide much needed food and homes for birds and wildlife, help to stop erosion and block highway noise from reaching our classrooms.”
We offer funding between $1000 and $4000 for individuals and organisations in regional areas along the Inland Rail route that contribute to local and regional prosperity, well-being and sustainability.
If you have an activity, event or project that will benefit your local community and you represent a community group or organisation that is a not-for-profit or local government body, we welcome your application.
