Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Scot MacDonald today visited St Brendan’s Catholic Primary School in Lake Munmorah to inspect plans for new classrooms following a $1.4 million grant from the NSW Government.

St Brendan’s is receiving $1,398,383 to support the $1,997,689 project under the Building Grants Assistance Scheme (BGAS), with further funds provided by the school community.                      

The project will involve the demolition of six temporary classrooms and the construction of eight new general learning areas of a contemporary design to further support current teaching practices.

The eight new state-of-the-art learning areas will be constructed within a new two-storey building. The project will help the school to achieve a more contemporary design and meet the needs of the significant number of students with additional learning needs who attend the school.

Joined by Assistant Principal Kellie Prendergast and school leaders, Mr MacDonald said it was great to see the project will shortly commence.

“These new classrooms will provide a modern learning experience for the pupils of St Brendan’s and I am glad the NSW Liberal National Government is able to support the school in their construction”

“This investment will allow St Brendan’s to continue to deliver high quality teaching outcomes in a safe and enjoyable environment”

“I thank the wonderful staff and students for their kind hospitality extended to me today”

BGAS is administered by the Association of Independent Schools NSW and the NSW Catholic Block Grant Authorities and funded by the NSW Government.
