School to build hall with $2 million grant
WHITSUNDAY Christian College has received a $2 million Commonwealth grant to build a multi-purpose hall on its Cannonvale site.
The grant was received by the school under the Building Education Revolution Initiative as part of the Federal Government Stimulus Package.
The 900 square metre building will be used for a wide range of school activities including drama, school assemblies and sport.
School Principal Allan Weir was highly appreciative of the grant and is hoping the building will be completed by about Easter next year.
“The funding will enable us to provide educational facilities that are much needed in the community, thanks to this initiative of the Federal Government,” Mr Weir said.
