A vision to create a multipurpose learning space and community hub in Gowrie will soon be a reality with funding for Stage One of the project announced today under the Coalition Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.
Federal Member for Groom John McVeigh today joined the President of the Gowrie State School Parents & Citizens Association Paul Judge, staff, students and friends of Gowrie State School to deliver the good news.
“The Coalition Government will invest $150,000 towards the first stage of this project which will see the construction of a 243 square metre multipurpose learning facility at Gowrie State School that will be available to the wider community,” he said.
“The facility will include a multipurpose room, a meeting room, public toilet facilities, washroom, kitchenette, multipurpose outdoor area and large open play space.
“This much-needed shared space will help bring the community together and cater for a wide range of events, programs and services.”
Dr McVeigh said the Gowrie State School P&C, who has championed this project, would also contribute $150,000 towards the $300,000 cost of stage one of project.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the Liberal and Nationals Government is committed to ensuring Australia’s regions remain strong, resilient and prosperous in the long term.
“We are supporting our regions through investing in important local infrastructure, as well as great community-building and planning initiatives under the Building Better Regions Fund and other Government priorities such as the Regional Growth Fund and our decentralisation agenda,” Mr McCormack said.
