Gold Coast students will benefit from a new primary school building, which was officially opened today by Member for McPherson Karen Andrews MP.
King’s Christian College in Reedy Creek received $490,000 in Federal funding for the project, through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
The College, which is Queensland’s largest independent school, contributed an additional $800,000 for the $1.3m facility, which Mrs Andrews said would benefit students for many generations.
“It was great to visit King’s Christian College to see the new facilities and hear about the positive impact the building will have on students,” Mrs Andrews said.
“It provides a flexible space that can be adjusted to suit the changing needs of the school community, to further enhance the learning environment.”
Mrs Andrews said school funding has increased every year under the Morrison Government – providing record funding for government schools, for Catholic schools and for Independent schools.
“We are ensuring that every child gets a quality education no matter where they go to school.
“We are delivering real, needs-based funding that is matched by national reforms that will drive better results and outcomes.”
