The Hon Alan Tudge MP
Minister for Education and Youth

Staff and students at ET Australia Secondary College in Gosford will benefit from two new and improved campuses, upgraded as part of the Morrison Government’s Capital Grants Program.

Minister for Education and Youth Alan Tudge and Member for Robertson Lucy Wicks today opened the renovated learning facilities including new classrooms, a science lab, two computer labs, breakout study areas, and learning enrichment rooms.

“These new, top-quality facilities will make a real difference in the daily lives of the students and teachers at ET Australia Secondary College,” Minister Tudge said.

“The Morrison Government has invested a million dollars into this project to give hundreds of students in Gosford access to the best possible learning experience, so they have the best chance to succeed.”

“The project is part of our record funding for Australian schools and will benefit not just current students, but those who study at ET for years to come.  

Ms Wicks said the contemporary learning facilities and the school’s unique teaching models would equip students with the skills to be successful both during and after school.

“It was a pleasure to visit ET Australia Secondary College to see the new facilities and hear about the positive impact it will have on the entire school community,” Mrs Wicks said.

“We are giving these local students the best possible chance to reach their full potential at school and go on to further study or into a job.”
