St Joseph�s Primary School in Culcairn celebrated the official opening of its $2.8m upgrade at a special event attended by Member for Farrer Sussan Ley and Bishop of Wagga Wagga Most Rev Mark Edwards OMI on 11 June 2021.

The Federal Government�s Capital Grants Program provided $875,139 towards new general learning areas and administration facilities at the coeducational primary school.�

Sussan Ley said it was great to see the new facilities and hear about the positive impact they will have on almost 60 students that attend the school.

�This is a wonderful school community, and these new classrooms and the Mary Mackillop Centre renovations will really enhance the learning environment,� Ms Ley said.�

Principal Josh Gaynor said his personal highlight was seeing Sister Marie�s reaction upon entering the beautiful new learning area.�

�Her sense of amazement is quite common of visitors to our school. We are very blessed to be able to provide such a space for our learners and their families.��
