Staff and students at Loxton Lutheran School will benefit from a project to build new classrooms and a staff office as well as improving outdoor play areas, funded as part of the Morrison Government’s Capital Grants Program.
Federal Member for Barker Tony Pasin said the Australian Government would provide $600,000 towards the project at Loxton Lutheran School.
“Students and staff at Loxton Lutheran School will benefit from the project to construct four new classrooms, a learning common, a breakout space, withdrawal rooms, a staff office and verandahs,” Mr Pasin said.
“The funding will also contribute to improving the outdoor spaces through paving and landscaping.
“Loxton Lutheran 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 Loxton Lutheran School on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact these new facilities will have on the school community.”
