The Riverina Anglican College is a step closer to completing its junior school constructions with the advent of a $900,000 federal government grant.
The funding, which has been provided through the capital grants program, will go towards completing the school's several learning spaces, student amenities and administration area.
The school is due to open as of 2021 with enrollments now filling. So far, the junior school has an intake of 170 across kindergarten to year 6.
"As an innovative and creative learning community, we are excited by the support provided to us by the federal government that has allowed the long-awaited vision of the college board for a new junior school to come to fruition," said TRAC principal Paul Humble.
The capital grants program represents a $314.7 billion funding target to be delivered across the nation's schools by 2029. To date, 158 projects have been approved for funding.
"As I have said many times before, your postcode should not determine your potential or access to quality education," Mr McCormack said.
