New facilities for students at St Angela of the Cross Primary School in Warragul from $1,750,000 federal funding
Member for Monash Russell Broadbent virtually blessed the opening of Stage 1 of St Angela of the Cross Primary School that was funded by the Coalition Government.
Mr Broadbent said students and staff would benefit from the new facilities including six general learning areas, an administration area, staff offices, amenities and associated spaces. The Coalition Government provided $1,750,000 for the project through the 2019 round of the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
The Capital Grants Program provides funding to non-government primary and secondary school communities to improve infrastructure, if they do not have enough capital resources
Quality education for every child
Mr Broadbent said, "It is great to see how the community will benefit from the new facilities which will have a positive impact on the students, St Angela of the Cross Primary School has a wonderful school community, and these new facilities will further enhance the learning environment."
"We are ensuring that every child gets a quality education no matter where they go to school. School funding has increased every year under our Government. Our Government is providing record funding for government schools, for Catholic schools and for Independent schools." Mr Broadbent said.
Commitment to education
Mr Broadbent also said, "We are delivering real, needs-based funding that is matched by national reforms that will drive better results and outcomes, as recommended by David Gonski in his Review to achieve educational excellence in Australian Schools. Our Government is funding improved facilities at schools, like St Angela of the Cross Primary School, as part of our commitment to education."
