Senator for Victoria Sarah Henderson today opened the newly refurbished learning areas and break out and teacher work spaces at Christ the King School that was funded by the Morrison Liberal Government.

Senator Henderson said students would benefit from the new facilities that provide flexible spaces to suit all styles of learning.

The Coalition Government provided $1,690,000 for the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.

“It was great to visit Christ the King School to see the new facilities and hear about the positive impact it will have on students,” Senator Henderson said.

“Christ the King School has a wonderful school community and these new learning areas and work spaces will further enhance the learning environment.

“We are ensuring that every child gets a quality education no matter where they go to school. School funding has increased every year under our Government.

“Our Government is providing record funding for government schools, for Catholic schools and for Independent schools.

“We are delivering real, needs-based funding that is matched by national reforms that will drive better results and outcomes, as recommended by David Gonski in his Review to Achieve Educational Excellence in Australian Schools.

“Our Government is funding improved facilities at schools, like these new learning areas at Christ the King School, as part of our commitment to education,” said Senator Henderson.
