Quakers Hill Public School celebrate opening of new classrooms

Students and teachers at Quakers Hill Public School held a ceremony yesterday at which the Federal Member for Chifley, Ed Husic officially opened six new classrooms.

Built as part of the Australian Government’s Building the Education Revolution (BER) program, Quakers Hill Public School received $3.2 million under the National School Pride (NSP) and Primary Schools for the 21st Century (P21) element of the BER.

Mr Husic congratulated Principal Bert Lo Campo and the assembled teachers and students of Quakers Hill Public School on their new facilities.

“This is a school community which is very obviously full of pride and I’m certain these new learning facilities will give students and teachers a well deserved boost,” Mr Husic said.

"The buildings here at Quakers Hill in many ways tell the story of the school’s rich history, with at least one of them dating back almost 100 years when the school moved to this site.”

"These new classrooms are a strong reminder that during global economic uncertainty the Australian Government took quick action to invest in school infrastructure, protect local jobs and cushion our own economy.”

The National School Pride (NSP) program has provided $11 million in funding for 82 projects throughout schools in Chifley for minor infrastructure and refurbishment.

Primary Schools for the 21st Century (P21) element has funded 49 eligible primary schools in Chifley a total of $116 million for major new infrastructure.

“As part of our Economic Stimulus Plan, the BER achieved its intended goal of keeping people in jobs, a fact I’m quite proud of,” Mr Husic said.
