Member for Longman Terry Young attended St Michael’s College on Monday to open a new design and technology laboratory, partly funded by the Morrison Government.
Mr Young said students would benefit from the purposefully designed space that would develop their abilities in technology.
It will give all students exposure to and experience of a wide array of technology and will be developing their skills to purposefully use technology.
The Morrison Government provided $120,000 for the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
“It was great to visit St Michael’s College to see the new facilities and hear about the positive impact it will have on students,” Mr Young said.
“St Michael’s College has a wonderful school community, and this new design and technology laboratory will further enhance the learning environment.
“We are ensuring that every child gets a quality education no matter where they go to school.
School funding has increased every year under our Government.
“Our Government is providing record funding for government schools, for Catholic schools and for Independent schools.
“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.
“Our Government is funding improved facilities at schools, like the new design and technology laboratory at St Michael’s College, as part of our commitment to education.”
