Member for Barker Tony Pasin today opened refurbished science and technology classrooms at Faith Lutheran College that were funded by the Coalition Government.

Mr Pasin said students would benefit from the science and technology facilities that would allow students to engage in their learning.

The Coalition Government provided $150,000 for the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.

“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 refurbished science and technology classrooms will further enhance the learning environment.

“We are ensuring that every child gets a quality education no matter where they go to school. School funding has increased every year under our Government.

“Our Government is providing record funding for government schools, for Catholic schools and for 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 refurbished science and technology classrooms at Faith Lutheran College, as part of our commitment to education.”
