Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, today announced that four local primary schools were successful in securing Federal Government funding in the most recent announcements under the Capital Grants Program. 

Brighton Catholic Primary School in Butler secured $203,460 to construct new office tutorial space, a covered shelter and an extended staff room and reception.

Holy Cross College in Ellenbrook secured $1,000,266 for a new sports centre, a health and physical education studio and a fitness centre.

Northshore Christian Grammar School in Alkimos secured $1,400,000 for new specialist learning areas.

Riverlands Montessori School in Dayton secured $260,000 for a new library space with a meeting room, office and kitchen.

“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,” Mr Porter said.

“The Government has committed $660 million until 2021, which provides funding for

non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.

“These upgrades will help advance each of these primary schools and ensure our classrooms have modern facilities.

“I congratulate these primary schools for their successful grant and look forward to seeing the impact these improvements will have in our community.”
