Member for Barker Tony Pasin today opened a new resource centre including a multipurpose art and drama space and tutorial rooms at Sunrise Christian School Naracoorte that was funded by the Coalition Government.

Mr Pasin said students would benefit from the new resource centre that provides a large open space for classes such as dance and drama.

The Coalition Government provided $280,000 for the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.

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

“Sunrise Christian School Naracoorte has a wonderful school community, and this new resource centre 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 new resource centre at Sunrise Christian School Naracoorte, as part of our commitment to education.”
