Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today officially opened three new classrooms at Clarence Valley Anglican School in Clarenza.
“Students and the whole school community will benefit from using the new facilities,” he said.
“These new learning spaces take into account the latest in education research and will see students learn more effectively.”
Students and staff at Clarence Valley Anglican School now have full use of the refurbished classrooms. The Australian Government provided $250,000 in funding from the Capital Grants Programme.
Mr Hogan attended the opening on behalf of Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham, Minister for Education and Training.
As well as delivering increased funding, the Australian Government is focusing on quality and choice for schools.
“While buildings alone do not make a great school, I hope students and staff will enjoy learning and be inspired by these new facilities,” Minister Birmingham said.
“The Australian Government is committed to improving the quality of our schools and equipping students with the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive world,” Minister Birmingham said.
Minister Birmingham is responsible for the Capital Grants Programme, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure where they otherwise may not have access to sufficient capital resources.
