The Abbott Government is scrapping the SchoolKids Bonus.
The former Labor Government introduced the SchoolKids Bonus as a way of providing relief for low and middle income families struggling to meet the costs of things they need like school uniforms, school shoes, textbooks, camps and other things needed for a good education.
Removing this payment means the average family will be $1230 worse off every year. By signing my petition, you are sending a strong message to the Abbott Government that we don't support scrapping the SchoolKids Bonus.
