$500,000 funding boost for Dubbo Christian School
A grant of $500,000 will result in the development of a technology centre for the Dubbo Christian School thanks to a nationwide funding program run by the Nationals-Liberal Government. 
The Member for Parkes, Mark Coulton said the proposed facility will provide general and specialist learning areas for woodwork, metalwork and computer aided design [CAD] as well as a staffroom, amenities and storage for materials and student major works. 
He said the school also plans to refurbish and repurpose existing spaces to create a general learning area and a visual arts room. 
“This funding will contribute to the overall project cost of more than $2.55 million,” Mr Coulton said. 
“It also covers professional fees, site development costs, special services costs, external infrastructure, furniture, fixtures and fittings.
“While buildings alone do not make a school, students and the whole local community will benefit from using these new facilities.”
The Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham said the Capital Grants Program provides vital funds for non-government schools to upgrade facilities such as classrooms, laboratories and libraries. 
“This program is part of the Coalition Government’s commitment to ensuring students have the support they need to succeed in the classroom,” Minister Birmingham said.
 “We’re overhauling Australia’s schools funding system and boosting investment by an average of $2370 per student or $25.3 billion across the whole system so students with the greatest needs get the greatest level of resources.”
Capital grants are additional to funds provided by state and territory governments, non-government school authorities, and school communities, which are responsible for providing and maintaining non-government school facilities.
