New library extension and learning areas for students at St James Lutheran College
Students at St James Lutheran College in Urraween will benefit from new learning facilities including an extended and renovated library, general learning areas, and a new amenities block thanks to $889,966 in funding from the Federal Government.
Member for Hinkler Keith Pitt officially opened the new facility today on behalf of the Minister for Education Dan Tehan.
“It was great to visit St James Lutheran College and see the new facilities firsthand and the impact they will have on students’ learning potential,” Mr Pitt said.
Mr Pitt said students and the whole school community would benefit from these new facilities.
“These new spaces, which include an extended and renovated library and six new learning areas, take into account the latest in educational research and will see students learn more effectively.
“This is part of our commitment to ensuring students have the support they need to succeed in the classroom.
“Students and teachers thrive when their schools have modern and up-to-date facilities – that’s why the Federal Government is proud of the Capital Grants Program, which has benefited thousands of schools across the nation.”
The Government has committed $703 million until 2022, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
