Staff and students at Mary MacKillop Catholic School in Highfields will benefit from work to develop new junior and senior art facilities, as well as music and drama facilities, funded as part of the Morrison Government’s Capital Grants Program.
Federal Member for Groom Garth Hamilton said the Australian Government would provide $1,000,000 towards the project at Mary MacKillop Catholic School.
“Students and staff at Mary MacKillop Catholic School will benefit from the construction of a new covered lunch area, and the conversion of other spaces into new junior and senior art, music and drama facilities, as well as administration and student amenities”, Mr Hamilton said.
“Mary MacKillop Catholic School has a wonderful school community, and these new facilities will further enhance the learning environment.
“Students and teachers thrive when their schools have modern and up-to-date facilities. That’s why the Morrison Government is proud of the Capital Grants Program, which has helped thousands of schools across the nation to build new and updated infrastructure.
“Our Government is ensuring that every child gets a high-quality education no matter where they go to school. We are providing a record $315.2 billion for all Australian schools between 2018 and 2029.
“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 the Review to Achieve Educational Excellence in Australian Schools.
“I congratulate Mary MacKillop Catholic School on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact these new facilities will have on the school community.”
