Federal Member of Parliament Michael Danby has advised J-Wire of new funding for two Melbourne Jewish dayschools announced by the Federal Government.

The Adass School  will receive $435,000 for a new science centre and the Yeshivah and Beth Rivkah Colleges will now be able to establish a Centre for Languages thanks to a $1,970,000 hand-out from Canberra.

Danby said: ”

This important element of the Rudd Government’s Building the Education Revolution  will deliver much needed funding to Melbourne Ports secondary schools which have demonstrated through a competitive process their school’s disadvantage and need.

“For years Australia was left with an infrastructure deficit so big and wide reaching by the Howard Government that many schools right around the country had to cope with temporary classrooms and run-down facilities and Melbourne Ports was no exception in this regard.

“I am delighted to see that those days are long behind us. These centres will provide Melbourne Ports students with access to modern and cutting edge technologies in their own learning spaces and at the same time provide immediate support for jobs.

‘In the long history of Jewish education this period will be remembered as a golden era of  Government investment in schools. We are providing the tools for our children to flourish and develop into the future leaders of tomorrow,” Mr Danby concluded.
