On 5 June, 2019 the Milkwood Steiner School community in Darwin celebrated the opening of their classroom. The new classroom was officially opened by The Honourable Selena Uibo, NT Minister for Education. It was a very special occasion, celebrated with singing, speeches and cake!
“Milkwood Steiner School is very grateful to the NT Government for providing the funding through the Building Better Schools program, as it has enabled us to fulfil one of our strategic goals to move into Middle School before 2020.
“With the BBS funding, we were able to re purpose an Inpex building for use as our Years 6/7 classroom, to enable us to offer Year 7 classes this year.
Initial costs for a fixed building on the same site were approximately three to four times that of placing a relocatable classroom, which serves our needs as we continue to work towards gaining a permanent home for the school.”
