New multipurpose centre for students at Heritage College

Students at Heritage College Officer Campus in Officer will benefit from a new multipurpose centre thanks to $1,200,000 in funding from the Federal Government.

Member for La Trobe Jason Wood officially opened the new facility today on behalf of the Minister for Education Dan Tehan.

“It was great to visit Heritage College and see the new facilities firsthand and the impact they will have on students’ learning potential,” Mr Wood said.

Mr Wood 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 our 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 Federal Government is proud of the Capital Grants Program, which has benefited thousands of schools across the nation.”

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