Staff and students at Scone Grammar School in Scone will benefit from a new science building including a science lab, science room, a prep room, a senior study space, six seminar rooms, school administration offices, storerooms, a veranda, a staffroom and kitchenette and a lift, which will improve student educational outcomes.


Senator for New South Wales Tim Ayres said work on the project will be delivered with support of Australian Government funding of $1 million through the Capital Grants Program.


“These new facilities will provide school staff, teachers and students at Scone Grammar School with better, more modern spaces in which to work, teach and learn,” Senator Ayres said.


“The Australian Government is committed to providing all schools with appropriate funding so that all students, including those at Scone Grammar School, get the best possible education.”


Senator Ayres said the new facilities will benefit the students currently at Scone Grammar School, as well as the many students who will follow in future years.


“The teachers, staff and students at Scone Grammar School have built a strong and positive school community and these new facilities will further enhance our local educational opportunities,” Senator Ayres 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.


“I congratulate Scone Grammar School on their successful grant application and look forward to seeing the positive impact these new facilities will have on the school community.”
