Member for Barker Tony Pasin MP has announced Rivergum Christian College will benefit from construction of a new building thanks to a Coalition Government grant.

Mr Pasin said the Australian Government would provide $223,100 towards the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non‑government schools to improve capital infrastructure.

“Students and staff at Rivergum Christian College will enjoy a new home economics facility, a classroom for secondary technology studies and student amenities, as well as a covered outdoor learning area when the project is completed,” Mr Pasin said.

“Rivergum Christian College 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 Rivergum on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact the new facilities will have on students and our community.”
