Students at St Joseph’s High School in Aberdeen will benefit from new and refurbished learning areas for art, technical and applied studies, Vocational Education and Training, and fitness thanks to $3,346,041 in funding from the Federal Government.

 

Member for New England Barnaby Joyce officially opened the new facility on behalf of the Minister for Education Dan Tehan.

 

“It was great to visit St Joseph’s High School and see the new facilities first-hand and the impact they will have on students’ learning potential,” Mr Joyce said.

 

Mr Joyce said students and the whole school community would benefit from these new facilities.

 

“These new learning spaces take into account the latest in educational research and will see students learn more effectively.

 

“This is part of our commitment to ensuring students have the support they need to succeed in the classroom.

 

“Students and teachers thrive when their schools have modern and up-to-date facilities – that’s why the Federal Government is proud of the Capital Grants Program, which has benefited thousands of schools across the nation.”

 

The Government has committed $703 million until 2022, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
