School students at Northshore Christian Grammar School in Alkimos will benefit from $1.4 million in funding from the Federal Liberal Government which will allow construction to commence on Stage 2 of the school’s campus.
The funding, which was delivered through the Government’s Capital Grants Program, will see the realisation of new specialist learning areas, preparation areas, storage areas, and additional staff and student amenities.
Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, yesterday attended a ceremony at the school to formally break ground on the expansion.
“It was a privilege to attend the ground breaking of Stage 2 of Northshore Christian Grammar School’s campus,” Mr Porter said.
“I am so pleased that the Federal Liberal Government has been able to provide the school with an additional $1.4 million to further develop its campus.
“This funding will enable the school to expand its operation and continue the invaluable work it does within the Alkimos community.”
This latest funding follows a previous grant of $1.6 million which was provided to the school in 2017.
Northshore Christian Grammar School Principal, Mr Stuart Chisholm, welcomed the construction of Stage 2 of the school’s campus.
“We are extremely excited about the continuation of investment and vision at Northshore,” Mr Chisholm said.
“We are proud to be building a school that not only provides excellent opportunities for our students but also focusses on developing a sense of community to all that form part of the Northshore family.”
Mr Porter said the funding provided to Northshore Christian Grammar School is evidence of the Federal Liberal Government’s commitment to ensuring all children have access to a world class education.
“Our Government is providing record funding for schools right across the country.
“In WA, our schools will receive an additional $2.4 billion in funding over the next decade - taking total investment in WA schools to almost $32 million over the next ten years.
“This represents real, needs-based funding.
“It’s only as a result of our Government’s ability to deliver a stronger economy that we can continue to make these record levels of investment.”
