Staff and students at Holy Trinity Lutheran College in Horsham will benefit from work to build a new middle school staff building and new classrooms, funded as part of the Morrison Government’s Capital Grants Program.
Federal Member for Mallee Anne Webster said the Australian Government would provide $450,000 towards the project at Holy Trinity Lutheran College.
“Students and staff at Holy Trinity Lutheran College will benefit from the construction of a middle school staff building which will include a staff workspace, a meeting room and amenities,” Dr Webster said.
“The project will also include the refurbishment of an existing building and an extension to create two additional general learning areas.
“Holy Trinity Lutheran College has a wonderful school community, and these new facilities will further enhance the learning environment.
“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 Holy Trinity Lutheran College on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact these new facilities will have on the school community.”
