TRINITY Anglican College Thurgoona has received a $1.8 million upgrade of its science facilities.
Students and staff at Trinity celebrated the opening of the new Founders’ Centre, which included the construction of three science laboratories.
The new buildings, built with the help of $700,000 in federal funding, were officially opened on Monday by local Federal MP and Assistant Minister for Education, Sussan Ley.
The project, totalling $1.8m was funded through a $700,000 Australian Government grant and by a $1.1 million contribution from the Trinity Anglican College community.
“These new facilities are an important part of ensuring students get a great education,” Sussan Ley said.
“Our government is committed to building a world-class education system which will equip all Australian students with the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive world.”
“These new science facilities at Trinity show exactly what can be achieved by a school with strong leadership and a clear vision for the future.”
“This is much more than a financial commitment, it’s a commitment to getting the very best out of each and every one of the students here today,” Ms Ley concluded.
