Regular shoppers at Bernardi's MarketPlace have voted for their favourite community groups in the company's Building Better Communities Fund, and the winner was Neville Public School.

The school will be using the $2,500 grant to purchase a suite of iPads for the students, an idea that excites student Molly Cassell.

"We'll be using some apps on them that will help all the students with literacy and maths," she said.

Blayney netball club received $1,500 from the fund and will be helping representative sides make it to the state age championships in June and July.

"We're going to help offset some of the costs of the three day carnival as it can be quite expensive for families," said President, Julie Prosper.

Blayney High School will be using their $1,000 grant to help pay for new furniture for students.

"We're updating and replacing a lot of our outdoor furniture that's out under the trees and also replacing some of the tables and chairs in the corridors," said Principal John Browett.
