NEW CLASSROOMS, HALL AND PERFORMANCE SPACE FOR SUMMERLAND CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
Summerland Christian College will receive a $900,000 grant from the NSW Government to support major building works at the school.
The NSW Government’s grant will go towards the school’s $5.9 million building project that includes three new classrooms, a multi-purpose hall, science and engineering labs, food technology facilities and a performing arts space.
Member for Lismore Thomas George welcomed the NSW Government funding, which will be provided under the Building Grants Assistance Scheme (BGAS).
“We want our local students to get the best education we can provide them,” Mr George said.
Education Minister Rob Stokes said the NSW Government was working hard to deliver the school facilities students need.
“We want to provide high quality education facilities to all students, regardless of what school they go to, so they can succeed and thrive in the 21st century,” Rob Stokes said.
The BGAS grant for Summerland Christian College is part of a program directed towards independent and Catholic schools with the greatest need, to help cater for growing enrolments and refurbish or build new facilities.
The grants help schools improve the learning environments for their students, giving schools contemporary facilities that reflect modern learning needs.
