Federal Member for Fremantle, Josh Wilson this week opened the new $5.2 million Year 2 and 3 learning facilities at Yangebup’s Mater Christi Catholic Primary School.
Mr Wilson said work on the development project was delivered with support of Australian Government funding of over $1 million through the Capital Grants Program.
“These new facilities will provide school staff, teachers, and students at Mater Christi Catholic Primary School with better, more modern spaces in which to work, teach and learn.
“The Australian Government is committed to providing all schools with appropriate funding so that all students, including those attending Mater Christi Catholic Primary School get the best possible education.”
The project has delivered the construction of six general learning areas, three support rooms, a multipurpose area, amenities, three storage areas, a covered area, verandahs, a shed, and an access road.
Mr Wilson said the new facilities would benefit the 600 current Mater Christi Catholic Primary School students, as well as the many students who will follow in future years.
“The teachers, staff and students at Mater Christi Catholic Primary School have built a strong and positive school community and these new facilities will further enhance local educational opportunities,” Mr Wilson said.
“Our Government strongly believes in providing the best possible resources so that local students can realise their potential and develop the skills they need to go on to further study or to find a job.”
The Capital Grants program also delivered $400,000 to Fremantle Christian College for the construction of four general learning areas, storage areas, an under croft and undercover area.
