Goulburn man, Lindsay Cosgrove has travelled north to take part in yet another Blazeaid campaign.

 

Blazeaid was established in 2009 to help with the aftermath of the Black Saturday Kilmore Fire in Victoria.

 

The restoration of fencing is perhaps the focus of the organisation but Mr Cosgrove says interacting with those affected by disaster is important.

 

The Goulburn man will work in the Logan River Valley which experienced devastating floods during Cyclone Debbie.

 

This will be Lindsay Cosgrove's fifth camp and he will be away for up to two months.

The Public Education Alliance of teachers, parents and school principals steps up its campaign in Goulburn today to protect Gonski funding.

 

A spokesman says the campaign is to remind Federal Coalition MPs that the plan being proposed will mean significant funding cuts for all local schools.

 

A visit by the Gonski Mobile Billboard today goes to Goulburn West Primary and Goulburn High schools between 11.30am and shortly after two pm.

 

At 3.15 this afternoon the campaign moves to Federal member, Angus Taylor's office.

 

Figures released by the Teachers Federation reveal funding cuts to local schools in 2018 and 2019.

 

According to the figures Goulburn High will get $690,000 less, Mulwaree $670,000 less and Goulburn Public School more than $325,000 less.
