Students with disability will benefit from new facilities at New Hope School in Dural, North Western Sydney. The $800,000 funding grant will build special needs classrooms, a breakout space and amenities.
Speaking at the opening, Minister for Education Dan Tehan said the Morrison Government was providing record funding for all schools.
“Through our Quality Schools Package, there will be more Federal Government money for disadvantaged students, including those from remote and regional areas, those with disability and Indigenous students,” the minister said. The government is also focusing on other ways to improve support for students with disability, including through the curriculum and ensuring that new and practicing teachers have the skills to support the individual learning needs of all students.
“New Hope School has a wonderful school community and the new facilities will further enhance the learning environment for students and teachers,” Member for Berowra , Julian Leeser said.
