Students and staff at Alta-1 College will benefit from new facilities in Joondalup, including offices, a boardroom, meeting rooms, teacher preparation space and three student learning areas.
Dean Smith, Senator for Perth’s northern suburbs, yesterday officiated at the opening ceremony for the project, which has been funded by the Morrison Coalition Government.
The Morrison Government contributed $1 million for the upgrade through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
Senator Smith said the facilities provide a safe environment for the students to engage and learn in.
“It was great to visit Alta-1 College to see the finished project and hear about the positive impact it will have on students and their teachers,” Senator Smith said.
“Alta-1 College has a wonderful school community and these new facilities will further enhance the learning environment here.
“We are ensuring that every child gets a quality education no matter where they go to school, but this is testament to the Morrison Government’s commitment to schools in Perth’s northern suburbs.
“Our Government is providing record funding for government schools, for Catholic schools and for Independent schools. School funding has increased every year under our Government.
“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.”
