The seal of approval

THE students at Peace Lutheran Primary School have millions of reasons to smile.

The school is now home to cutting edge facilities after officially opening a $2.1 million library and resource centre on Friday.

School principal, Genevieve Clark, was overwhelmed with the modern facilities, describing the new building as a once in a lifetime project.

 “We have been given something truly marvellous without it being asked for and it feels amazing,” she said.

She said the students would feel the benefits of the new facilities for many years to come.

“There is no way we would have been able to raise the kind of money needed,” she said.

“It won a Master Builders award for Health and Education Facilities below $4 million.

“It is just something we never envisaged happening and never thought about affording.”

Ms Clark said the library had already made an impact.

“It's already become the hub of the school, It will continue to be even more of a hub as more and more of the students get to use it.”

Federal Member for Blair, Shayne Neumann, said the school received great value for money.
