MEDIA RELEASE: New facilities for students at St Thomas More College
LNP Senator for Queensland Gerard Rennick today opened the new Nagle Building including learning areas, student amenities, verandah and canteen at St Thomas More College that was funded by the Federal Liberal National Government.
Senator Rennick said students would benefit from the new Nagle Building that would allow students to engage in their learning.
The Federal Liberal National Government provided $793,909 for the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
“It was great to visit St Thomas More College to see the new facilities and hear about the positive impact it will have on students,” Senator Rennick said.
“St Thomas More College has a wonderful school community, and this new Nagle Building will further enhance the learning environment.
“We are ensuring that every child gets a quality education no matter where they go to school. School funding has increased every year under our Government.
“The Morrison Government is providing record funding for government schools, for Catholic schools and for Independent schools.
“We are delivering real, needs-based funding that is matched by national reforms that will drive better results and outcomes, as recommended by David Gonski in his Review to Achieve Educational Excellence in Australian Schools.
“The Morrison Government is funding improved facilities at schools, like the new Nagle Building at St Thomas More College, as part of our commitment to education.”
