The newly-opened St Narsai Assyrian Christian College in Horsley Park will receive $850,000 as part of the NSW Government’s $2.5 million grants to support upgrade and improvement works.
The money will help with the final two stages of the school’s $35 million project and fund a new two-storey building with four classrooms, a performing arts workshop, music practice rooms, hospitality and textile workshops and a covered outdoor working area.
Mulgoa MP Tanya Davies said the funding, provided under the Building Grants Assistance Scheme (BGAS), will ensure students in the local community get the “best education we can provide them.”
“Supporting new facilities like this ensures these students get that top-quality education,” she said.
The BGAS grants are part of a $33 million NSW Government program directed towards independent and Catholic schools with the greatest need, to help them cater for growing enrolments and refurbish or build new facilities.
Other schools in the local area to benefit include:
- Thomas Hassall Anglican College will get a $500,000 grant to extend the existing junior school building with five new classrooms, a resource space, breakout area and covered verandah.
- Mamre Anglican College will get $50,000 to build four classrooms, a collaborative learning area, arts and performance spaces.
- Al-Faisal College in Liverpool will receive $1.1 million to build a two-storey secondary school building with 13 classrooms, two science labs, storerooms and amenities.
