Joint Media Release with Country Liberals Candidate for Solomon Kathy Ganley
Students at two Palmerston schools will benefit from new facilities thanks to CLP funding, Country Liberals Senator for the Northern Territory, Nigel Scullion and CLP Candidate for Solomon, Kathy Ganley, announced today.
Senator Scullion said the Coalition Government would provide $368,700 towards new security fencing at Good Shepherd Lutheran College through the Capital Grants Program.
“These security fencing upgrades to the perimeter of Good Shepherd Lutheran College will help secure the College’s modern classrooms facilities to help ensure the best educational outcomes for students.
“Students and teachers thrive when their schools have modern and up-to-date facilities – that’s why the Federal Coalition Government is proud of the Capital Grants Program, which has benefited thousands of schools across the nation,” Senator Scullion said.
Good Shepherd Lutheran College Palmerston Principal Rachel Boyce said, “Good Shepherd are extremely grateful for the assistance of the Federal Government in proving funding to ensure we can provide exceptional learning and wellbeing outcomes for our students in a safe environment.”
Mrs Ganley said an investment of $29,900 for MacKillop Catholic College in Johnston will see the creation of two new tutorial rooms in the College’s library.
“These upgrades will help improve MacKillop Catholic College and ensure it continues to have modern facilities.
“I congratulate both MacKillop Catholic College and Good Shepherd Lutheran College for their successful grants and look forward to seeing the impact these improvements will have in the Palmerston community,” Mrs Ganley said.
MacKillop Catholic College Principal, Lauretta Graham, gave sincere thanks to the Australian Government for the grant to build the two tutorial rooms for senior students.
“Mackillop enjoys the culture of students taking their studies seriously and these rooms will provide spaces during school and after school times for study sessions. MacKillop thanks the Australian Government for their care of the youth in Palmerston.”
The Coalition has committed $660 million until 2021 for the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
