Government Invests $25,000 in Irene McCormack Catholic College
Posted on Tuesday, 17 October 2006
Students and staff at Irene McCormack Catholic College will benefit from an Australian Government grant of $25,000 under the Investing in Our Schools Programme, the Member for Pearce announced today.
Judi Moylan said the grant would be used for the completion of the college bus and maintenance shed.
The Investing in Our Schools Programme is an exciting new initiative which will deliver much needed funds to less well-off Catholic/Independent schools in Pearce.
“The Australian Government recognises the importance of providing schools with facilities that will enhance the education and wellbeing of students.
The Investing in Our Schools Programme builds on the $1.5 billion already allocated by the Australian Government for school capital works over the four years 2005-08.
"During 2005-08, the Programme will provide an additional $300 million in capital funding to Catholic/Independent schools, as promised during the 2004 Federal election campaign,” Mrs Moylan said.
“This project involves a significant amount of funding which demonstrates the Government’s continued commitment to a strong and effective school system, maximising the opportunities for your Australians,” she said.
