NAZARETH STUDENTS BETTER SUPPORTED BY BER
Date: 01 July 2011
A new $3.2 million multipurpose hall has added to the innovative learning environment at Nazareth Catholic College in Findon.
The College received $3,200,000 to build the hall under the National School Pride (NSP) program and Primary Schools for the 21st Century (P21) element of the BER, a welcome addition to the school.
Officially opening the building today, Federal Member for Port Adelaide Mark Butler said the hall serves the needs of both students and the wider community.
“Nazareth has a strong sense of community, with students, parents, teachers and the wider community all contributing to, and sharing in, the services and facilities on offer here,” Mr Butler said.
“The community garden and the Community Connections Committee are reflections of that. So, I’m pleased to see the impact the new multipurpose hall has had in not only providing an improved learning environment, but also in bringing the community closer together.
“This particular project supported the employment of approximately 14 local tradespeople, who worked with the principal, school staff and parents to create the hall.”
The BER is a key element of the Australian Government’s $42 billion Nation Building – Economic Stimulus Plan to support jobs, stimulate local economies and invest in important infrastructure for the long term.
The $14.1 billion Primary Schools for the 21st Century (P21) element is providing funding to over 7900 eligible primary schools in every state and territory for major new infrastructure.
