Senator the Hon Joe Ludwig today attended the official opening of the new multipurpose hall at Hillcrest

Christian College in Reedy Creek, built as part of the Gillard Labor Government’s Building the Education

Revolution (BER).

Hillcrest Christian College received $3,200,000 under the National School Pride (NSP) program and

Primary Schools for the 21st Century (P21) element of the BER.

The BER is a key element of the Federal Labor’s Nation Building - Economic Stimulus Plan to support jobs,

stimulate local economies and invest in important infrastructure for the long term.

Senator Ludwig congratulated Hillcrest Christian College on their new facilities and spoke of the benefit to

both the school and local community.

“We have now reached the next exciting phase in Building the Education Revolution,” the Senator said’.

“It has been fantastic to see the principal, school staff, parents and tradespeople working together to

deliver these important projects. Now that they are completed, teachers and students in our local schools

will be teaching and learning in 21st Century facilities that they so richly deserve.”

The $1.28 billion National School Pride (NSP) program is providing funding to more than 9400 eligible

schools in every State and Territory for minor infrastructure and refurbishment.

The $14.1 billion Primary Schools for the 21st Century (P21) element is providing funding to over 7900

eligible primary schools in every State and Territory for major new infrastructure.

‘It is tremendous to be here today to celebrate the opening of the multipurpose hall and to witness first

hand, the impact this has had on Hillcrest Christian College and the local community.

“I am also delighted to announce that this particular project has supported the employment of many

building and construction workers. This is what we strived to achieve - this is the essence of the Economic

Stimulus Plan,” Senator Ludwig said.
