NEW facilities at St Brigid’s Catholic School in Wynyard will bring benefits to students for years to come, the Federal Member for Braddon, Sid Sidebottom said today.
Speaking at the school’s ceremony for the opening of the $2,160,000 library, administration area and classroom refurbishments, Mr Sidebottom said the Australian Government’s Building the Education Revolution (BER) investment was delivering modern facilities to school students around Australia.
”The BER is the single biggest investment in Australian schools in our history,” he said.
”In the North-West and West coasts of Tasmania alone, 63 schools with a total of 95 projects have been funded under the BER.
”This represents an investment of more than $100 million in our region to enhance teaching and learning in our schools, investing in much needed school and community infrastructure and providing jobs in challenging economic times.”
Mr Sidebottom said the Government’s investment had resulted in libraries, science labs, classrooms and multipurpose halls being built across the country.
”They are enhancing learning environments for students and giving teachers and staff a more enjoyable place to work.”
Mr Sidebottom congratulated St Brigid’s Catholic School and the local community for their efforts in delivering this historic investment to their school.
