Public schools in South Australia are being urged to apply for a $2000 State Government grant so they can purchase a new flagpole.
Flags are used in Australia to demonstrate our national identity and raising the flag each day is a great lesson for students who want to learn more about history and our nation’s culture.
Many schools across the State have written to the Department for Education and Child Development requesting funding for flagpoles.
The $2000 installation grant is for schools that currently have only one or no flagpoles.
All flagpoles will be installed by the end of next year.
