New Facilities for Staff and Students at St Philips Christian College - Port Stephens

Member for Paterson Meryl Swanson has opened the new Junior School Building at St Philip’s Christian College – Port Stephens which will improve student educational outcomes.


 Ms Swanson said work on the development project was delivered with support of Australian Government funding of $1,750,000 through the Capital Grants Program.


“A lot of work has gone into this project which has delivered a new two storey junior school facility which includes new general learning areas, withdrawal rooms, breakout/practical activities areas and outdoor learning areas on each floor, as well as a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) room, learning support areas, and an administration area,” Ms Swanson said.


“These new facilities will provide school staff, teachers, and students at St Philip’s Christian College – Port Stephens with better, more modern spaces in which to work, teach and learn.


“The Australian Government is committed to providing all schools with appropriate funding so that all students, including those in St Philip’s Christian College, Salamander Bay, get the best possible education.”


Ms Swanson said the new facilities would benefit the students currently at St Philip’s Christian College – Port Stephens, as well as the many students who will follow in future years.


“The teachers, staff and students at St Philip’s Christian College – Port Stephens have built a strong and positive school community, and these new facilities will further enhance our local educational opportunities,” Ms Swanson said.


“Our government strongly believes in providing the best possible resources so that local students can realise their potential and develop the skills they need to go on to further study or to find a job.”
