Staff and students at St Augustine’s School in Maryborough will benefit from a project that will deliver new classrooms, and improve the school administration and library facilities, funded as part of the Morrison Government’s Capital Grants Program.
Federal Member for Mallee Anne Webster said the Australian Government would provide $1,600,000 towards the project at St Augustine’s School.
“Students and staff at St Augustine’s School will benefit from the refurbishment work to existing school buildings to create new general learning areas and to upgrade existing classrooms, administration and library facilities and associated spaces,” Dr Webster said.
“St Augustine’s School 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 St Augustine’s School on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact these new facilities will have on the school community.”
