On Monday 30 April, an opening and blessing ceremony was held at Trinity Catholic Primary School, Kemps Creek to officially open the newly constructed $2.5 million multipurpose hall funded by the Australian Government’s Building the Education Revolution (BER) program.

In a congratulatory letter to the school community, Senator Chris Evans, Leader of the Government in the Senate and Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills, Jobs and Workplace Relations acknowledged the hard work of the school.
‘I believe this effort and the wider education revolution initiatives that we are all working on together will benefit the school and broader communities for many years to come,’ the letter read.
Holy Spirit parish priest, Fr Dave Austin, welcomed the school and parish community, as well as special guests including, representatives from Thomson Adsett Architects, representatives from Walton Construction and principals from neighbouring Catholic schools.
Bishop Anthony said that school is a time of laying foundations for life and reminded students about the gift of their Catholic education.
‘Everyone who has contributed to this project knows that each and every one of you is the unique image of God and have worked hard to create an environment of respect, involvement and love of learning so that you can reach your full potential,’ said Bishop Anthony.
Director system performance, Paul Menday, thanked the Australian Government for their investment in education.
‘These wonderful facilities provide for a special kind of learning that is relevant in today’s world - engaging, personalised, collaborative and centred on Christ,’ said Paul. ‘In this year of our silver jubilee as a diocese, we have much to be thankful for and much to look forward to.’
Trinity’s principal, Scott Buchan said the BER funded hall has allowed the school to join together as a community.
