New facilities at Good Shepherd Primary School in Plumpton will bring benefits to students for years to come, Federal Member for Chifley, Ed Husic said this week.
Speaking at the school’s ceremony for the opening of the $5,000,000 multipurpose learning centre, library and refurbished classroom facilities, Mr Husic said the Australian Government’s historic Building the Education Revolution (BER) investment was delivering modern facilities to school students right across Chifley.
“The BER injected $16.2 billion of investment into renewing school infrastructure and is delivering modern facilities to schools and communities across the country including Chifley,” Mr Husic said.
Mr Husic congratulated Principal Mary Creenaune, teachers, staff and parents of Good Shepherd Primary School for their efforts in delivering this historic investment to their school.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for the whole Plumpton community to come together and celebrate the new facilities.
“It is the single biggest investment in Australian schools in our history – and it’s the biggest single investment in Good Shepherd Primary since its opening in 1979.
“Projects like these at Good Shepherd Primary School are making a real difference improving the learning environment for our children and we will continue to see the benefits of this program for many years to come.”
The School expressed their thanks to the builders Taylor Construction for the professional way they went about making the improvements to schools.
Mr Husic said the Government’s investment had resulted in libraries, science labs, classrooms and multipurpose halls being built across the country.
“These facilities are an investment in our future and will deliver better education outcomes for students in your community and throughout Australia,” he said.
“They are changing the way our students learn and giving teachers and staff a more enjoyable place to work.
“The bricks and mortar of these buildings are merely the foundations on which long term educational benefits will be built and continue to flow to Australian students for years to come.”
