Refurbished facilities for St Vincent’s Primary School

Labor Member for Grayndler Anthony Albanese today opened the refurbished multi purpose hall at St Vincent’s Primary School built as part of the Gillard Labor Government’s $42 billion plan to support jobs, stimulate local economies and invest in important infrastructure for the long-term.

The school received $1,800,000 from the Building the Education Revolution (BER) to refurbish the hall, classrooms, playground and student amenities.

“The hall will be used for assemblies, community events and lessons in dance, drama, music and art,” said Mr Albanese.

“The On The Block community band will also use the facilities for rehearsals and lessons.”

Mr Albanese said eighteen jobs were supported during the work at St Vincent’s Primary School.

“Similar projects have been occurring in 8000 other primary schools across the country,” said Mr Albanese.

“This is why Australia was the only developed country that managed to stay out of recession.

“I congratulate the staff and parents from St Vincent’s and the local tradespeople who have contributed to this fantastic project.”
