Member for Barker Tony Pasin today announced Good Shepherd Lutheran School will benefit from new primary classrooms, a leaning common and a covered outdoor leaning area thanks to a Coalition Government grant.
Mr Pasin said the Australian Government would provide $587,000 towards the project at Good Shepherd Lutheran School through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non‑government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
“Students and staff at Good Shepherd Lutheran School would benefit from the refurbishment of three upper primary general learning areas and adjacent learning common to provide interactive learning spaces with new furniture, as well as the construction of a covered outdoor learning area attached to the three classrooms,” Mr Pasin said.
“Good Shepherd Lutheran School has a wonderful school community, and the 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 benefited thousands of schools across the nation.
“Our Government is ensuring that every child gets a quality education no matter where they go to school. We are providing a record $310.3 billion in recurrent funding for all Australian schools under our Quality Schools package.
“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.
“I congratulate Good Shepherd Lutheran School on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact the new facilities will have on students and our community.”
