Member for Mackellar, Jason Falinski today announced Coalition Government funding for the construction of a new building with multiple learning areas to benefit students at Yanginanook School in Belrose.
Mr Falinski said the Australian Government would provide $350,000 towards the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
“Students and staff at Yanginanook School will benefit from the construction of a new flexible multi-purpose building with two general learning areas with operable walls for use as a multipurpose hall, a science laboratory, a large undercover all-weather deck, a storage area and student amenities,” Mr Falinski said.
“Yanginanook School has a wonderful 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 benefited thousands of schools across the nation.
“Our Government is ensuring that every child gets a quality education no matter where they go to school. We are providing a record $314.7 billion for all Australian Schools from 2018 to 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 his Review to Achieve Educational Excellence in Australian Schools.
“I congratulate Yanginanook School on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact the new facilities will have on students and our community.”
Mr Falinski said the funding announcement is one of 158 projects approved for funding under the Capital Grants Program to commence in 2021.
