December 4, 2019

More than $5 million in Capital Grants Program funds will go towards upgrades at Warwick’s St Mary’s School, providing students with the best platform for academic success, Maranoa MP David Littleproud today announced.

“The Federal Government wants to give regional students the best chance to succeed and having state-of-the-art facilities benefits the whole school community,” Mr Littleproud said.

“These projects at St Mary’s are certainly going to help students develop skills needed in the 21st century workforce.

“I congratulate St Mary’s School on making the most out of the Capital Grants Program and I’m happy to see that the facilities are going to be a great support for our budding students as they grow and prepare to make their contribution to society in the future.

“Education is a state responsibility and this is part of our commitment to making sure students have the support they need to succeed in the classroom.

“We’re ensuring that every child gets a quality education no matter where they go to school.”

Projects at St Mary’s include building:

  • Eight new general learning areas,
  • New prep areas;
  • An administration block;
  • A multipurpose area;
  • A lunch covered area;
  • Student amenities.

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