Up­grades made eas­ier

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

UP­GRADES at St Maria Goretti’s Catholic School have been made eas­ier with a $900,000 grant from the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s Cap­i­tal Grants Pro­gram.

The Red­cliffe school is un­der­tak­ing up­grades worth $3.4 mil­lion.

Swan MHR Steve Irons said the up­grades would en­sure stu­dents could get the most out of their ed­u­ca­tion.

“While build­ings alone do not make a school, St Maria Goretti’s Catholic School stu­dents will ben­e­fit when th­ese en­hanced fa­cil­i­ties are com­plete, and for years to come,” he said.

Min­is­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing Si­mon Birm­ing­ham said the Gov­ern­ment was com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing fund­ing for non-gov­ern­ment schools to im­prove cap­i­tal in­fras­truc- ture where lo­cal school com­mu­ni­ties could not oth­er­wise af­ford to do so.

“The Gov­ern­ment be­lieves in an ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem that puts stu­dents first – a sys­tem that de­liv­ers a qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion, in qual­ity school class­rooms, science labs, li­braries, and gives young peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to achieve per­sonal suc­cess to con­trib­ute to our na­tion,” he said.
