Member for Mallee Anne Webster today opened a new roof and refurbishment project, including new veranda, at St Paul’s Primary School that was funded by the Coalition Government.
Dr Webster said students would benefit from the outdoor learning hub and recreational space as part of the refurbishment project that would enable students to enhance their learning potential.
The Coalition Government provided $1,500,000 for the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
“It was great to visit St Paul’s Primary School to see the new facilities and hear about the positive impact it will have on students,” Dr Webster said.
‘”St Paul’s Primary School has a wonderful school community, and this new roof and refurbishment project 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.
“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 the new roof and refurbishment project at St Paul’s Primary School, as part of our commitment to education.”
