Students and staff at The Hills Montessori School will have full use of a new outdoor leaning area and refurbished classrooms thanks to funding from the Turnbull Government.
Senator for South Australia Anne Ruston officially opened the new facility in Aldgate today on behalf of the Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham.
“It was great to visit The Hills Montessori School and see the new facilities firsthand and the impact they will have on students’ learning potential,” Senator Ruston said.
The Turnbull Government provided $109,400 in funding from the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure where they otherwise may not have access to sufficient capital resources.
Senator Ruston said students and the whole school community would benefit from these new facilities.
“These new learning spaces take into account the latest in educational research and will see students learn more effectively,” she said.
The Government’s school reforms will deliver real needs-based funding, so that students with the same need within the same sector will attract the same support from the Commonwealth, and with students who need the most support getting the most support, as quickly as possible.
