School students at Cooloola Christian College in Gympie will benefit from new science laboratories, an experimental investigation room and a graphics and robotics area thanks to $535,000 in funding from the Federal Government.
 
Member for Wide Bay Llew O'Brien officially opened the new facility today on behalf of the Minister for Education Dan Tehan.
 
"It was great to visit Cooloola Christian College and see the new facilities firsthand and the impact they will have on students' learning potential," Mr O'Brien said.
 
Mr O'Brien said students and the whole school community would benefit from these new facilities.
 
"These new learning spaces take into account the latest in educational research and will see students learn more effectively."
 
"This is part of our commitment to ensuring students have the support they need to succeed in the classroom."
 
"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."
 
The Government has committed $703 million until 2022, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.
