New tech lab for students

Posted: 8am 17 Mar 2021

St Michael’s College, Caboolture, has opened a new design and technology laboratory, which was partly funded by the Federal Government.

Federal Member for Longman Terry Young said students would benefit from the purpose-designed space that would develop their abilities in technology.

It will give all students exposure to, and experience of, a wide array of technology and will be developing their skills to use technology.

Positive impact

The Federal Government provided $120,000 for the project through the Capital Grants Program, which gives funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.

“It was great to visit St Michael’s College to see the new facilities and hear about the positive impact it will have on students,” Mr Young says.

“St Michael’s College has a wonderful school community, and this new design and technology laboratory will further enhance the learning environment.

New design

Mr Young says the Federal Government is providing record funding for government schools, Catholic schools and Independent schools.

“We are delivering real, needs-based funding that is matched by national reforms that will drive better results and outcomes, as recommended by David Gonski in his Review to Achieve Educational Excellence in Australian Schools," says Mr Young.

“Our Government is funding improved facilities at schools, like the new design and technology laboratory at St Michael’s College, as part of our commitment to education.”
