Riverina primary school celebrates $2.8m upgrade

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.”
