“Students and teachers thrive when their schools have modern and up-to-date facilities,” Mr Porter said.

“The Government has committed $660 million until 2021, which provides funding for non-government schools to improve capital infrastructure.

“These upgrades will help advance each of these schools and ensure our classrooms have modern facilities.”
