Staff and students at Macquarie Anglican Grammar School in Dubbo will benefit from a project to build new classrooms and student amenities, 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 Macquarie Anglican Grammar School.
“Students and staff at Macquarie Anglican Grammar School will benefit from the construction of four classrooms, a central learning area, student amenities, a staff room and a covered verandah,” Mr Coulton said.
“Macquarie Anglican Grammar 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 Coalition 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 Macquarie Anglican Grammar School on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact these new facilities will have on the school community.”
