Senator for New South Wales Jim Molan AO DSC today announced St Peter’s Anglican College in Broulee will benefit from the construction of a new vocational education food technology hub thanks to a Coalition Government grant.
Senator Molan said “the Australian Government would provide $800,000 towards the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.”
“Students and staff at St Peter’s Anglican College – Broulee will benefit from the hub which will contain two general learning areas, a food technology/hospitality learning space, a food preparation area, a food technology tutorial space, textiles and arts learning spaces, teacher/administration spaces and lift access and amenities,” Senator Molan said.
“St Peter’s Anglican College – Broulee has a wonderful school community, and these new facilities will help students gain the skills they need to secure employment and succeed beyond school.”
“Students and teachers thrive when their schools have modern and up-to-date facilities – that’s why the Morrison Government is proud of the Capital Grants Program, which has benefited thousands of schools across the nation.”
“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.”
“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.”
“I congratulate St Peter’s Anglican College – Broulee on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact the new facilities will have on students and our community.”
Senator Molan said “the funding announcement was one of 158 projects approved for funding under the Capital Grants Program to commence in 2021.”
