New classrooms for students at St Mark’s Catholic Primary School
Students at St Mark’s Catholic Primary School in Inala will benefit from new classrooms and a playground thanks to $606,793 in funding from the Federal Government.
Senator for Queensland Amanda Stoker officially opened the new facility today on behalf of the Minister for Education Dan Tehan.
“It was great to visit St Mark’s Catholic Primary School and see the new facilities firsthand and the impact they will have on students’ learning potential,” Senator Stoker said.
Senator Stoker 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 $703 million until 2022, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
