Staff and students at Macarthur Anglican School in Cobbitty will benefit from work to build new classrooms and collaborative learning spaces, funded as part of the Morrison Government’s Capital Grants Program.
Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor said the Australian Government would provide $500,000 towards the project at Macarthur Anglican School.
“Students and staff at Macarthur Anglican School will benefit from the four refurbished and redesigned general primary learning areas, four collaborative learning spaces and two outdoor learning areas,” Mr Taylor said.
“Macarthur Anglican 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 Morrison 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 Macarthur Anglican School on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact these new facilities will have on the school community.”
