$2.17-million school infrastructure project gets the green light
Another major infrastructure project is about to get underway in the Hastings.
Federal Member for Lyne Dr David Gillespie today announced Federal funding of $870,000 would be made available towards a $2.17-million capital works project at the Heritage Christian School.
“This project will not only improve the learning and teaching activities of students and teachers at Heritage Christian School, but also provide a boost to the local economy with jobs during the construction phase of the project,” Dr Gillespie said.
The project includes four new classrooms and one staff room, refurbishment of the existing performing arts building, the refurbishment of two existing staff areas and the creation of two additional classrooms.
The school community is contributing $1,296,158 towards the $2,166,158 project.
Dr Gillespie said the new facilities will ensure the school’s students who come from all parts of the Hastings and Camden Haven will continue to receive a great education.
“The Government believes in an education system that puts students first,” Dr Gillespie said.
“We are committed to helping equip all Australian students with the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive world.
“Everyone who worked so hard to bring these new facilities to life has shown exactly what can be achieved by a school with strong leadership and a clear vision for the future.”
Australian Government funding is being provided through the Capital Grants Programme.
