Re­ac­tion to funds pos­i­tive

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - NEWS -

STU­DENTS at Hill­Side Chris­tian Col­lege will have full use of a new sci­ence block which in­cludes two lab­o­ra­to­ries and a sci­ence prepa­ra­tion area, thanks to fund­ing from the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment.

Hasluck MHR Ken Wy­att of­fi­cially opened the new fa­cil­ity in For­rest­field last week.

“It was great to visit Hill­Side Chris­tian Col­lege and see the new fa­cil­i­ties first-hand and the im­pact they will have on stu­dents’ learn­ing po­ten­tial,” Mr Wy­att said.

The Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment pro­vided $310,000 in fund­ing from the cap­i­tal grants pro­gram, which pro­vides fund­ing to non-gov­ern­ment schools to im­prove cap­i­tal in­fra­struc­ture.

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

“The Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment is com­mit­ted to putting sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, en­gi­neer­ing and math­e­mat­ics at the heart of school ed­u­ca­tion,” he said.
