New Facilities for students at Wahroonga Adventist School

Member for Bradfield, Paul Fletcher today announced Wahroonga Adventist School will benefit from the fit-out of two learning areas and a shared space thanks to a Coalition Government grant.

Mr Fletcher said the Australian Government would provide $250,000 towards the project at the school through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.

“Students and staff at Wahroonga Adventist School will benefit from the upgraded learning areas which will support the school’s planned expansion to include Year 12 students from 2021,” Mr Fletcher said.

“Wahroonga Adventist School 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 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 $314.2 billion in recurrent funding for all Australian schools under our Quality Schools package.

“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 Wahroonga Adventist School on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact the new learning areas will have on students and our community.”
