Deagon Ward E-News
2018 is off to a flying start! I have already had the opportunity to attend most schools in the Deagon Ward for their leadership inductions, the launch of the 2018 Active school travel programs at local schools and lots of other community groups too.
This year we will have four local school participating in Council's Active School Travel Program and competition is already increasing between St Flannan's Zillmere, Nashville, Shorncliffe and Sandgate State Schools. I have relaunched the Deagon Ward 'Bramble Bay Legends' Active School Travel cup with the winning school receiving the perpetual term cup and a voucher to reward the students.
Clean Up Australia Day was held last weekend with hundreds of volunteers across 10 different sites in the Deagon Ward cleaning up our parks and open spaces. This yearly event is gaining popularity with more families involved this year. A local 'War on Waste' group has been set up with a view to reduce single use items and encourage people to participate in regular beach clean ups. The first clean up will be on 8 April. Click here

If you are part of a community organisation or school P&C, you may be eligible for a Brisbane Airport Giving Fund grant. Applications will be accepted until 31 March 2018.
