Member for Barker Tony Pasin today attended Faith Lutheran College to open new science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) facilities that were funded by the Coalition Government.

Mr Pasin said students would benefit from the new facilities that would allow a modern, safer and more innovative environment to inspire, challenge and strengthen the students’ growth in development and learning.

The Coalition Government provided $280,000 for the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.

This project included refurbishment of science and technology classrooms, mathematics classrooms, wet science laboratory, science preparation room and purchase of furniture and equipment.

“It was great to visit Faith Lutheran College to see the new facilities and hear about the positive impact it will have on students,” Mr Pasin said.

“Faith Lutheran College has a wonderful school community, and these new STEM classrooms will further enhance the learning environment.”

“We are ensuring that every child gets a quality education with school funding increasing every year under our Government.”

“Our Government is providing record funding for government, catholic and independent schools.”

“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 his Review to Achieve Educational Excellence in Australian Schools.”

“Our Government is funding improved facilities at schools, like the new facilities at Faith Lutheran College, as part of our commitment to education.”
