GOOGONG SCHOOL FIT FOR THE FUTURE WITH STAGE 2 OFFICIALLY OPENED
Monday, 7 May 2018
The Anglican School Googong continues to grow, with students, teachers and members of the Googong community today gathering to officially open stage 2 of the school.
Member for Monaro John Barilaro today opened school’s new $2.76 million high school building, to which the NSW Government contributed a grant of $1 million.
“It’s great to be here with teachers, mums, dads and Googong’s first high school students, who are the first users of this brand new, state of the art building,” Mr Barilaro said.
“The NSW Government is working to ensure that our teachers have the best teaching spaces and our kids have the best learning spaces.
“It is clear that this funding has been put to great use, with four fantastic learning areas built for TASG’s year 7 students.”
The Anglican School Googong Principal, Merryn Clarksmith, said that in addition to the facilities for the school’s first high school students, the building includes staff offices, a new reception and administration areas which will suit the school as it continues to grow.
“It has been an exciting journey as we prepared to expand and welcome our first high school students this year,” Miss Clarksmith said.
“Thanks to the support of John Barilaro and the NSW Government, we have been able to build a truly remarkable learning space.
“The new building includes two science and technology specialist spaces, which are open areas geared for collaborative learning, as well as two other large and accommodating general learning spaces.
“The building has been called Yumalundi, which means welcome in Ngunnawal language.”
Mr Barilaro recently announced a further $900,000 for The Anglican School Googong’s Stage 3 constructions.
