SOMERLY Primary School will receive $3000 from the Federal Government to install an ‘avenue of honour’ at its entrance.

The funding comes from the ‘Saluting their service’ grants program and Pearce MHR Christian Porter said the Somerly project would commemorate World War I servicemen from City of Wanneroo who were killed in action.

“Local organisations, such as Somerly Primary School, are ensuring that we honour our military history in ways that are meaningful to our community,” he said.

Mr Porter encouraged local groups to apply for funding to support community projects that honoured Australia’s military history.

The community commemorative grants program provides up to $4000 for an individual project and applications are accepted at any time.
