A NEW federally-funded science centre at New Norfolk High School was officially opened on March 31. The school had received $2,048,988 under the National School Pride program and Science and Language Centres for 21st Century Secondary Schools elements of the federal government’s economic stimilus package.
The Federal Member for Lyons, Dick Adams MHR, congratulated the school on its new facilities. “It has been fantastic to see the principal, school staff, parents and tradespeople working together to deliver these important projects. Now they are completed, teachers and students in our local schools will be teaching and learning in 21st Century facilities that they so richly deserve,” Mr Adams said.
“It is tremendous to be here today to celebrate the opening of the science centre and to witness first hand, the impact this has had on New Norfolk High School and the local community. I am also delighted that this particular project has supported the employment of a number of workers. This is what we strived to achieve – this is the essence of the Economic Stimulus Plan,” Mr Adams said.
