Broad opens school ex­pan­sion

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Mem­ber for Mallee An­drew Broad has of­fi­cially opened Hor­sham Holy Trin­ity Lutheran School’s new mid­dle school and spe­cial­ist school.

Mr Broad said he wel­comed what was a valu­able in­vest­ment in re­gional ed­u­ca­tion.

“These new build­ings are a great ad­di­tion to ed­u­ca­tional fa­cil­i­ties that are avail­able to fam­i­lies liv­ing in the Hor­sham re­gion,” he said.

“As a govern­ment, it is our re­spon­si­bil­ity to ensure that chil­dren around the coun­try have ac­cess to quality ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties and ev­ery dol­lar in­vested on im­prov­ing schools in re­gional Aus­tralia is money well spent.”

Con­struc­tion of new fa­cil­i­ties at the school was sup­ported by $1.4-mil­lion in fund­ing through the Coali­tion govern­ment’s Cap­i­tal Grants Pro­gram.

The new fa­cil­i­ties in­clude gen­eral learn­ing, spe­cial­ist teach, seminar, group learn­ing, cov­ered out­doors learn­ing and out­door play ar­eas, staff work­place and stor­age. “While I am the first to agree that great build­ings alone do not make a great school, I will al­ways ar­gue that our stu­dents de­serve the best learn­ing en­vi­ron­ments pos­si­ble,” Mr Broad said.

“Holy Trin­ity is an ex­am­ple of a school that is fos­ter­ing the ed­u­ca­tional out­comes and aspiration­s of its stu­dents by giv­ing them both quality teach­ing and quality re­sources.”
