St Philip’s Christian College – Gosford Campus has a new Dynamic Alternative Learning Environment (DALE) campus building funded by the Federal Government.
Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks, said students would benefit from the new two-storey split-level building.
The Government provided $550,000 for the project through the Capital Grants Program, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
“It was great to visit St Philip’s Christian College DALE – Gosford Campus to see the new facilities and hear about the positive impact it will have on students,” Wicks said.
“(It) has a wonderful school community, and this new campus building will further enhance the learning environment.
“School funding has increased every year under our Government, which 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.”
