Drought-affected students at a Gunnedah school will get a helping hand.
Carinya Christian School is one of four schools to share in more than $550,000 from the federal government's Special Circumstances Funds.
Parkes MP Mark Coulton said the government would support schools across his electorate.
"Local schools in the Parkes electorate, as well as boarding schools, have been assisting families impacted by the drought by offering fee relief and additional support," he said.
"Our government is taking action to back those schools through the Special Circumstances Fund, so they can continue to help families impacted by the drought."
"In times of drought, it's essential we ensure that our children continue to receive a world-class education.
"We need to remember that the drought won't end just because it rains."
Mr Coulton said local Catholic schools will share in more than $2.8 million in New South Wales allocated funding to be provided through the Catholic education authority.
Drought support for public schools is being administered by the state and territory governments.
Special Circumstances Funds are expected to reach school authorities in the coming weeks.
