STUDENTS and staff of Faith Lutheran College will have full use of five new classrooms, an undercover gymnasium and an undercover learning area after the school scored $360,000 of Commonwealth funding.
Federal Member for Wright Scott Buchholz officially opened Stage 8 of the newly constructed facilities at Faith Lutheran College in Plainland on Friday.
Mr Buchholz, who attended the opening of G Block on behalf of Education Minister Senator Simon Birmingham, congratulated the school on its success in securing money through the government’s Capital Grants Program.
“It was great to see the new facilities firsthand and the impact they will have,” he said.
“Students and the whole school community will benefit from this project.
“These new learning spaces take into account the latest in education research and will enhance the students’ learning experience.”
Senator Birmingham said the funding was focused on achieving positive outcomes in literacy, numeracy and STEM subjects, helping lift teacher quality and better preparing students for life after school.
“While buildings alone do not make a great school, I hope students and staff will enjoy learning and be inspired by these new facilities,” he said.
“The government is committed to improving the quality of our schools and equipping students with the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive world.”
The Capital Grants Program provides funding for non-government schools to improve infrastructure.
