David Hill started this petition to Scott Morrison (Prime Minister of Australia) and

How many of us out there appreciate the support given through the school kids bonus especially at the beginning of the year when school goes back for a fresh start and it becomes important to have all those items our children need like school bags, uniforms etc. Recently I have noticed the school kids bonus has been abolished, this has had a massive impact on our finances and I am sure my family aren't the only one's struggling at this time. The reason for this petition is to raise awareness, get people talking about the subject and voicing their own opinions and just maybe with enough support we can get back what we use to be entitled too and all of sudden are not, I personally believe that if the government is trying to save some money why couldn't they just remove the middle of the year payment so that everyone is able to at least supply their children with the essential items needed at the beginning of the school year. Please Sign if you too are someone affected by the school kids bonus abolishment.

Our general public's prosperity is reliant on the government ensuring that all students are given an equal platform of opportunity. This begins with education, and the Schoolkids bonus is a key method for support to help struggling families, throughout Australia with the expenses of children's schooling needs.


Without this support, our youngsters will begin their schooling at a disadvantage. Without uniforms, school bags, shoes that fit correctly etc. How can the children be confident, comfortable and settle into their school environment? Without stationary supplies, in what capacity can our children express their inventiveness, thoughts and creative abilities? Without comfortable sneakers, by what methods can our children find their physical gifts, exercise or simply just be children and play?, Without that extra bit of financial support how can parents pay for excursions so that our children can experience the world around them?

Please Bring Back the School kids bonus for the benefit of all Australian children's self esteem and education.
