Staff and students at St Andrew's Grammar in Dianella will benefit from a construction project that will deliver new learning areas as well as new science and technology laboratories, funded as part of the Morrison Government’s Capital Grants Program.
Federal Member for Stirling Vince Connelly said the Australian Government would provide $800,000 towards the project at St Andrew's Grammar.
“St Andrew's Grammar has a wonderful school community, and these new facilities will further enhance the learning environment,” Mr Connelly said.
“Students and staff will benefit from this development project in a number of ways, including the construction of seven general learning areas, two science and technology laboratories, a machine room, a function area, as well as other office and storage areas.
“Students and teachers thrive when their schools have modern and up-to-date facilities. That’s why the Morrison Government is proud of the Capital Grants Program, which has helped thousands of schools across the nation to build new and updated infrastructure.
“Our Government is ensuring that every child gets a high-quality education no matter where they go to school. We are providing a record $315.2 billion for all Australian schools between 2018 and 2029.
“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 the Review to Achieve Educational Excellence in Australian Schools.
“I congratulate St Andrew's Grammar on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact these new facilities will have on the school community.”
