Kealy backs upgrades for St Patrick’s Primary School Stawell

Stawell’s St Patrick’s Primary School will benefit from a $3-million grant for new 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 announced the funding, which will go towards building three new general learning areas and associated spaces, plus refurbishing student amenities.

“St Patrick’s is an innovative and dynamic school that has worked hard to improve its facilities in recent years, and I am proud to pledge this funding to ensure the school can continue to provide a wonderful environment for its staff and students to learn and work in,” she said.

“The school has a history of more than 100 years of providing primary education to the Stawell 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.”

Horsham’s St Brigid’s College 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.
