Staff and students at St Peter’s Anglican College in Broulee will benefit from a project to construct a new senior school building and extend the existing performing arts centre to create new general and specialist learning areas, funded as part of the Morrison Government’s Capital Grants Program.
Federal Senator for New South Wales Jim Molan said the Australian Government would provide $1,500,000 towards the project at St Peter’s Anglican College.
“Students and staff at St Peter’s Anglican College in Broulee will benefit from the work to build a senior school building and extend the existing performing arts centre to provide eight classrooms, three recording studios, a sound mixing area, four music practice rooms, plus staff and student amenities,” Senator Molan said.
“St Peter’s Anglican College Broulee has a wonderful school community, and these new facilities will further enhance the learning environment.
“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 helped thousands of schools across the nation to build new and updated infrastructure.
“Our Government is ensuring that every child gets a high-quality education no matter where they go to school. We are providing a record $315.2 billion for all Australian schools between 2018 and 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 the 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 these new facilities will have on the school community.”
