OTHER RECENT NEWS FROM ST JOSEPH'S:
Mr Toole recently met with principal Jaydem Hadson, school captains Tom Robinson and Grace Kirkman and vice-captains Elizabeth Newland and Wade Thompson to deliver the good news.
"The funding will go towards a new water bottle refill station at the school and it will be put in an area where the students play sport and exercise," Mr Toole said.
"The aim of this is to emphasis to the children the importance of reusing their drink bottles and stopping plastic bottles going to landfill."
Mr Toole said the NSW Community Building Partnership program awards grants for community infrastructure projects.
It aims to support initiatives that "deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes while also promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion", according to the NSW Government.
