Kealy backs upgrades for St Brigid’s College Horsham

Horsham’s St Brigid’s College will benefit from a $3-million grant to upgrade learning areas and amenities under an elected Nationals government.

The funding forms part of a $700-million, four-year package to better support non-government schools across the state to keep pace with growing infrastructure demands.

Member for Lowan and Deputy Leader of the Nationals Emma Kealy visited St Brigid’s College to announce the funding, which will go towards refurbishing the school’s home economics space, canteen and student amenities.

“St Brigid’s is an amazing school that punches well above its weight for its small size, and I am proud to pledge this funding to ensure the school can continue to provide a wonderful, dynamic environment for its staff and students to learn and work in,” she said.

“The school has done an incredible amount of work over the past few years to improve the amenity and learning experiences for its students through the construction of a new Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) centre and also an outdoor hub.

“The school has a history of more than 100 years of providing secondary education to the Horsham community, and the funding from the Nationals to further improve learning areas and amenities will ensure it can continue to provide quality education well into the future.

“Our children and teachers deserve the very best learning environments and facilities, and our commitment will support schools to achieve this.”

Stawell’s St Patrick’s Primary School will also receive a share of the $700 million, which will benefit more than 360,000 students in more than 100 schools across the state.
