Capital works at the Trinity Lutheran College will be officially opened on Monday, 3 April 2006 by The Nationals Federal Member for Mallee, John Forrest MP.

The capital works involved renovations to the science laboratory and preparation area to create two laboratories and a preparation area for science practicals. The food technology area was also modified to create two distinct teaching spaces by the inclusion of a partition doorway.

The Australian Government contributed a grant of $110,000 and the school contributed $110,000, made up of school resources and a loan from the Lutheran Laypeople’s League. The total final cost of the project was $220,000.

Mr Forrest congratulated the school and its community on establishing the best possible facilities for their students. “These outstanding facilities will help ensure all students at Trinity Lutheran College are encouraged to realise their potential and attain their goals”.

Mr Robert Albrecht, College Principal said they were delighted with the improvements. “Our students will benefit greatly from these improved learning areas, particularly in relation to being able to undertake practical lessons,” said Mr Albrecht.

The school commenced as Holy Trinity Lutheran School at the beginning of 1982 with 29 students and in October 2004 it changed its name to Trinity Lutheran College. In 2006, the school employs 37 full and part time teachers who cater for 518 students from Prep to Year 10.

Mr Forrest said the project demonstrated the Australian Government’s commitment to providing every student with the best possible learning environment through the provision of these updated facilities.
