STUDENTS and staff in Alkimos recently celebrated the opening of the second stage of St James’ Anglican School.

The expansion includes a junior school building with seven general learning areas, a staff room, a large collaborative space, a specialist art and music room, two IT areas and student amenities.

Pearce MHR Christian Porter officially opened the facilities on behalf of the Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham this month.

“It was great to visit St James’ Anglican School and see the new facilities firsthand and the impact they will have on students’ learning potential,” Mr Porter said.

“These new learning spaces take into account the latest in education research and will see students learn more effectively.”

He said the Federal Government provided $694,600 from the Capital Grants Program, which funds non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.

Mr Birmingham said the Government’s recurrent funding growth will be tied to a range of evidence-based initiatives to support students by focussing on outcomes in literacy, numeracy and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects.
