Schools and community groups have shared in community grants worth $50,000 from Splendour in the Grass.
Brunswick Heads Public School received $9,270, and organisers say it will go towards future musicals in coming years.
‘Our aim of the school musical grant is for every student to have the opportunity to perform at the Brunswick Picture House – to have the opportunity to sing, act and or dance.
‘And for those students who prefer to stay out of the spotlight, there will be opportunities for them to work behind the scenes in props, lighting, sound and organisation.
$50,000 given to 10 local community organisations
‘In total, $50,000 was provided to 10 local community organisations, including The SHIFT Project Byron INC, The Returning Indigenous Organisation, Crabbes Creek Community Hall, BayFM Community Radio Inc, Brunswick Heads Breakfast Club Inc (Bruns Brekkie), Sprung!! Integrated Dance Theatre, Byron Youth Service Inc, Mullumbimby Sustainability Education & Enterprise Development Inc (Mullum SEED) and Ocean Shores Public School’.
