·

Federal Member for Adelaide, Steve Georganas, officially opened the Ledra building refurbishment at St George College in Adelaide on March 3.

In a press release, Mr Georganas said the Federal Government contributed $406,700 through the Capital Grants Program to assist with the redevelopment.

Steve Georganas MP attended the official opening of new facilities at St George College in Adelaide.

“I am a firm believer that providing our students with safe learning environments that offer opportunity and growth is fundamental to the core of our society, and for the future of Australia,” Mr Georganas said in his press release.

“A lot of work has gone into this project, delivering the refurbishment of an existing building for senior secondary students, including staff facilities, a small kitchen for students and the enclosure of a veranda to form a student breakout space; along with the refurbishment of an existing room to student amenities.

“The teachers, staff and students at St George College have built a strong and positive school community and these new facilities will further enhance and inspire the hard work that is already being done.”

Following the formalities, guests enjoyed a morning tea, prepared and presented by the College’s Hospitality students.

Morning tea served in the new building.

In a statement on Facebook, St George College thanked everyone for their support and said “the refurbishment project breathed new life into the Ledra Building, which is almost 100 years old.”

“Our senior students and staff love Ledra. The rooms are spacious, the communal areas work well, the technology supports student learning, there is a sense of independence and freedom for our senior students…” the Facebook post reads.

“It’s a really inviting space and we love it!”
