Rockingham schools receive funding

ROCKINGHAM Montessori School and SMYL Community College are among four WA schools awarded additional funding through the Australian Government’s capital grants program.

Rockingham Montessori will share in more than $2 million of funding, with the money being spent on refurbishment of a general learning area to create a music room.

Meanwhile SMYL, an independent, non-government Curriculum and Re-engagement in Education (CARE) school in Rockingham, will get funds to buy a school building.

Senator Michaelia Cash said the funding would help students reach their potential.

“These funds will ensure students at these schools have the infrastructure to help them gain the most out of their time at school,” she said.

Other schools to receive funds as part of the Program include Mandurah’s Foundation Christian College and The King’s College in Wellard.
