Students at St James Anglican School in Alkimos will benefit from a new building for students in middle school thanks to $1,200,000 in funding from the Morrison Government.
Member for Pearce Christian Porter officially opened the new facilities today on behalf of the Minister for Education Dan Tehan.
“It was great to visit St James Anglican School here in Alkimos and see the new facilities firsthand and the impact they will have on students’ learning potential,” Mr Porter said.
Mr Porter said students and the whole school community would benefit from these new facilities.
“This is part of our commitment to ensuring students have the support they need to succeed in the classroom. That’s why this funding has been provided so a new building could be constructed for the middle school students, which includes eight learning areas, three specialists rooms, administration areas and amenities for students and staff.
“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.
