Written answers (Question to Education)

My Department's approach is to align the grant payments to each of the three terms of the school year.

Grant payments will reflect the duration of each school term and other factors e.g. the PPE grant payments for the first term included provision for once off set up costs for installing sanitizer dispensing units.

The next tranche of grant payments will issue in early January.
