NEW LEARNING AREAS A BOOST FOR ST JOSEPH’S PRIMARY SCHOOL STUDENTS
STUDENTS at St Joseph’s Primary School in Junee will benefit from new and refurbished facilities officially opened by Riverina MP and Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack.
Mr McCormack said the new areas, including a library, administration area and learning spaces, were due to $1,488,856 in funding from the Federal Government.
“It was great to visit St Joseph’s Primary School and see the new facilities firsthand and the impact they will have on students’ learning potential,” Mr McCormack said.
“There is nothing more important than a good education and the Liberal and Nationals’ Government is committed to providing the infrastructure to help students reach their potential.”
Mr McCormack said students and the whole school community would benefit from these new facilities.
“These new learning spaces take into account the latest in educational research and will see students learn more effectively,” he said.
“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.
