Strathalbyn Christian College will receive $525,000 in Federal funding for two new pre-primary learning areas, an activity area, meeting room, toilets and a shed.
Federal Member Melissa Price said she congratulates the school on being awarded their grant.
Strathalbyn Christian College was one of three schools in the region to receive funding, Carnarvon Christian School and Yiramalay/Wesley Studio School in Fitzroy Crossing will also gain new facilities.
“These funds will ensure students at these schools have the infrastructure necessary to help them get the most out of their time at school,” Ms Price said.
“While buildings alone do not make a school, the students will benefit when these enhanced facilities are complete, and for years to come.
Senator Simon Birmingham, the Minister for Education and Training, said the Australian Government is committed to providing funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure where local school communities could not otherwise afford to do so.
“The Australian Government is committed to ensuring our education system equips all Australians with the opportunity to be their best, do their best and make our country its best,” Senator Birmingham said.
“The Government believes in an education system that puts students first – a system that delivers a quality education, in quality school classrooms, science labs, libraries, and gives young people the opportunity to achieve personal success to contribute to our nation.”
