Beechboro Christian School will benefit from the development of a new site and the relocation of classrooms ahead of its opening in 2022, thanks to a Coalition Government grant.
The $750,000 grant was announced today by Senator Dean Smith, Senator for Perth’s northern suburbs.
Senator Smith said the Morrison Government would contribute to the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
“This grant makes possible the relocation and modification of existing demountable buildings to a new site that has been purchased by the school. also includes siteworks, landscaping and paving, the construction of a new carpark, as well as fencing, and hard court and play areas,” Senator Smith said.
“Beechboro Christian School has a wonderful school community, and these new facilities will further enhance the learning environment for students and the working environment for staff.
“Students and their teachers thrive when their school has up-to-date facilities – that’s why the Morrison Government is proud of the Capital Grants Program, which continues to benefit thousands of schools across Australia.
“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.
“I congratulate Beechboro Christian School on their successful grant application and am looking forward to seeing the very positive impact the new facilities will have there.”
The funding announcement was one of 158 projects approved for funding under the Capital Grants Program to commence in 2021.
