Taminmin College at Humpty Doo will receive additional equipment and training as part of a nationwide digital literacy programme run by the Coalition Government.
Country Liberals Senator for the Northern Territory, Nigel Scullion, today announced Taminmin College would receive $50,000 through the Digital Literacy School Grants Programme.
“This is about making sure our students get the support and skills they need for the future,” Senator Scullion said.
“I congratulate Taminmin College for being selected from almost 1800 applications for funding under this round of the programme which just goes to show the wonderful potential of its project.
“The project will see the school establish extracurricular student technology clubs and enable it to purchase robotics equipment, software and other devices as well as provide professional development for student leaders.
“This project will help Taminmin College to build the digital skills of its students and spark an interest in broader important fields like science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).”
Senator Scullion said $4 million had been allocated to the Digital Literacy School Grants Programme as part of the Coalition Government’s $50.6 million commitment to help Australian teachers and students embrace the digital age.
“I encourage all Territory schools that missed out on funding in this round to apply in the next round which opens in the middle of the year,” Senator Scullion said.
“We’re committed to ensuring that each student, no matter where they live in Australia, has a strong knowledge of STEM subjects.”
