New Year 7 learning centre for students at St Mary of the Angels Secondary College
High school students at St Mary of the Angels Secondary College in Nathalia will benefit from a new San Rufino Year 7 learning centre thanks to $700,000 in funding from the Federal Government.
Member for Murray Damian Drum officially opened the new facility today on behalf of the Minister for Education Dan Tehan.
“It was great to visit St Mary of the Angels Secondary College and see the new facilities firsthand and the impact they will have on students’ learning potential,” Mr Drum said.
Mr Drum said students and the whole school community would benefit from these new facilities.
“These new learning spaces take into account the latest in educational research and will see students learn more effectively.
“This is part of our commitment to ensuring students have the support they need to succeed in the classroom.
“Students and teachers thrive when their schools have modern and up-to-date facilities – that’s why the Federal Government is proud of the Capital Grants Program, which has benefited thousands of schools across the nation.”
The Government has committed $660 million until 2021, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
