Member for Barker, Tony Pasin, today attended Good Shepherd Lutheran School to open the new upper middle primary learning areas that were funded by the Coalition Government.

Mr Pasin said students would benefit from the new facilities that have been modernised to enhance the collaborative teaching and learning experience.

The Coalition Government provided $587,000 for the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.

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

“Good Shepherd Lutheran School has a wonderful school community, and these new primary learning areas 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 Good Shepherd Lutheran School, as part of our commitment to education.”
