Member for Albury Greg Aplin has welcomed the $46 million investment of the NSW Government’s Connecting Country Schools program.
He said it will see a wireless connectivity upgrade at 43 schools across the electorate, including Jerilderie Public School.
‘‘I am proud the NSW Government is supporting students in our region because they deserve to have the same internet access at school as their city counterparts,’’ Mr Aplin said.
Work on this four-year program will begin at three pilot schools to the end of September, which will road test the solution and the process of implementation.
‘‘Once schools have been upgraded with the solution, they will be able to apply for additional funds from an innovation fund to maximise the capability within their school and their community,’’ Mr Aplin said.
