KALAMUNDA residents will benefit from $1 million funding to expand the Kalamunda Community Learning Centre under a re-election promise by the Turnbull Government.
Hasluck MHR Ken Wyatt announced a commitment to fund the expansion of the not-for-profit centre earlier this week.
Mr Wyatt said the expansion would benefit people of all ages in the community who wished to continue their learning.
“Currently KCLC have to hire space in a number of locations to conduct classes, which is costly. This expansion project of Jorgensen Park will enable KCLC to expand their course offering and course sizes,” he said.
“Having been in operation for 37 years, and with more than 700 members, KCLC is an organisation that brings the entire community together through learning.
“It’s a very worthwhile cause and I am delighted to be able to make this announcement.”
Kalamunda shire president Andrew Waddell said the shire has been working with the learning centre for quite some time to develop a design for the new facility.
“The commitment from the Member for Hasluck, on behalf of the Liberal Party, is a step in the right direction and I encourage the federal Labor Party to also look at the need for this facility and to commit funding,” he said.
“The Shire of Kalamunda is also working on a submission to Lotterywest seeking State Government support for the project.
