Media Release: Refurbished science building for students at Mount Barker Waldorf School

School students at Mount Barker Waldorf School in Mount Barker will benefit from a refurbished science building thanks to $702,000 in funding from the Morrison Government.

Senator for South Australia Anne Ruston officially opened the new facility today on behalf of the Minister for Education Dan Tehan.

“It was great to visit Mount Barker Waldorf School and see the new facilities firsthand and the impact they will have on students’ learning potential,” Senator Ruston said.

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.”

“This is part of the Morrison Government’s commitment to ensuring students have the support they need to succeed in the classroom.”

“Students and teachers thrive when their schools have modern and up-to-date facilities – that’s why the government is proud of the Capital Grants Program, which has benefited thousands of schools across the nation.”

The Morrison Government has committed $703 million until 2022, which provides funding for
non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
