Federal Member for Parkes and Minister for Regional Services Mark Coulton has today announced Carinya Christian School in Gunnedah will benefit from new classrooms and pupil facilities, thanks to a Coalition Government grant.
Mr Coulton said the Government would provide $900,000 towards the school’s infrastructure project through the Capital Grants Program.
“I’m thrilled that Carinya Christian School students will be able to take their learning to another level, thanks to this grant funding,” Mr Coulton said.
“Congratulations to school principal Chad Kentwell and the rest of the school staff on their successful grant application.
“The project includes the construction of two general purpose learning areas, a visual arts learning space and a covered learning area for design and technology. It will also include works on verandahs and walkways, a covered outdoor learning space, staff rooms, administration and reception, as well as a sick bay and storage.
“Carinya Christian School has a wonderful school community and I look forward to seeing the positive impact the new infrastructure will have on students and the local community.
“Students and teachers thrive when their schools have modern and up-to-date facilities – that’s why the Coalition 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.”
