Students and staff at Trinity Christian School in the ACT today celebrated the opening of a new student hub and school administration building that were built with the help of $600 000 in Australian Government funding.
Senator Zed Seselja, opened the new facilities on behalf of the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Education, Senator the Hon Scott Ryan.
The project, totalling almost $4 million, was funded through a $600 000 Australian Government grant, and by a $3.39 million contribution from the Trinity Christian School community.
The project involved the demolition of the old administration building and the construction of a new building comprising administration and student hub parts.
Senator Zed Seselja said the new facilities are an important part of ensuring that students get a great education.
“The Government believes in an education system that puts students first. We are committed to building a world-class education system that will equip all Australian students with the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive world,” Senator Zed Seselja said.
“These new facilities here at Trinity Christian School show exactly what can be achieved by a school with strong leadership and a clear vision for the future.
“This is much more than just a financial commitment. This is a commitment to getting the very best out of each and every one of the students here today.”
Australian Government funding was provided through the Capital Grants Program for non-government schools.
