Federal Member for Grayndler Anthony Albanese today opened the new covered outdoor learning area at St Peters Public School built as part of the Gillard Labor Government’s $42 billion Nation Building – Economic Stimulus Plan to support jobs, stimulate local economies and invest in important infrastructure for the long-term.

The school received $925,000 from the Building the Education Revolution (BER) to build the covered outdoor learning area, install solar panels and a rainwater tank and refurbish some of the school buildings.

Mr Albanese congratulated St Peters Public School on its new facilities and said the new structure would allow students to learn and play outside come rain, hail or shine.

“I am pleased to see these projects reaching completion after all the great work from local principals, parents and tradespeople,” said Mr Albanese.

“Australia stands alone amongst developed economies in staying out of recession and it is because of this project and all the other projects like it in around 8000 primary schools across the country.”
