St Mary's Primary School in Young scoops $676,542 in funding
St Mary’s Primary School at Young will have new learning areas constructed and existing learning areas refurbished thanks to funding provided by the NSW Government.
The project is receiving $676,542 to support the $966,000 project under the Building Grants Assistance Scheme, with further funds provided by the school community.
The project will provide contemporary learning areas for students and staff as well as break-out spaces for remedial learning activities as well as behaviour management. The project will also refurbish pupil facilities.
Member for Cootamundra Katrina Hodgkinson has welcomed the funding and congratulated St Mary’s for their successful project.
“This funding will help St Mary’s Primary School get these works off the ground and I’m delighted the NSW Government is able to support this project,” Katrina said.
“St Mary’s is one of our lovely school communities here in Young so it is terrific to see this important initiative supported, to ensure positive outcomes and opportunities for staff and students alike.”
Education Minister Rob Stokes said the Building Grants Assistance Scheme was an important initiative to support local school communities.
“This funding will help improve facilities so schools are equipped to meet the learning needs of students today and into the future,” Mr Stokes said.
Principal of St Mary’s Primary School Louise Grant said the grant was a game-changer for the school.
“We’ve now got 21st century learning in 21st century classrooms, we’re very pleased with the level of support for the school and its students, especially from the state government for recognising the importance of supporting education in rural areas and helping to provide such excellent facilities for country students.”
