Improving school facilities in Tuncurry

14th December 2018

Secondary school students at Alesco Senior College – Coast Campus in Tuncurry will benefit from a new kitchen area for senior hospitality and food technology students thanks to a Federal Government grant.

Federal Member for Lyne David Gillespie today announced the Australian Government would provide $300,000 towards the project at Alesco Senior College through the Capital Grants Program.

“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,” Dr Gillespie said.

“The Government has committed $660 million until 2021, which provides funding for
non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.”

“These upgrades will help advance Alesco Senior College – Coast Campus and ensure our classrooms have modern facilities.

“I congratulate Alesco Senior College for their successful grant and look forward to seeing the impact these improvements will have in our community.”
