Staff and students at Carinya Christian School in Gunnedah will benefit from work to build a new library and administration areas, funded as part of the Coalition Government’s Capital Grants Program.
Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton said the Australian Government would provide $800,000 towards the project at Carinya Christian School.
“Students and staff at Carinya Christian School will benefit from the construction of a new library, meeting room, offices, a reception area, a uniform shop, a staff room and staff amenities,” Mr Coulton said.
“Carinya Christian School has a wonderful school community, and these new facilities will further enhance the learning environment.
“Students and teachers thrive when their schools have modern and up-to-date facilities. That’s why the Morrison Government is proud of the Capital Grants Program, which has helped thousands of schools across the nation to build new and updated infrastructure.
“Our Government is ensuring that every child gets a high-quality education no matter where they go to school. We are providing a record $315.2 billion for all Australian schools between 2018 and 2029.
“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 the Review to Achieve Educational Excellence in Australian Schools.
“I congratulate Carinya Christian School on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact these new facilities will have on the school community.”
