Local students to benefit from new facilities

THE Australian Christian College Hobart Campus will benefit from a new STEM facility, general learning area and library after receiving funding from the Australian Government.

The school, located in Geilston Bay, was granted $240,000 through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve infrastructure.

Principal David Noble said the project was needed to help upgrade the facilities.

“We’re a growing high school and we wanted a science facility, which we are lacking at the moment,” he said.

“To take it to the next level and have Bunsen burners and a place to do chemical reactions will facilitate the best education in the area of science.

“A new building is always a great start and it’s going to inspire our students, but that ability to access the science, technology and engineering side of things is going to be massive.”

Senator Jonathon Duniam said the Australian Christian College Hobart Campus had a wonderful school community and these new facilities would further enhance the learning environment.

“Students and teachers thrive when their schools have modern facilities and the Morrison Government’s Capital Grants Program has benefited thousands of schools across the nation,” he said.

“Congratulations to the Australian Christian College Hobart Campus on its successful grant application and I look forward to seeing the positive impact the new facilities will have on students and our community.”
