Bishop praises school



THE Bishop of Lismore, Geoffrey Jarrett, praised parishioners and parents for their commitment to the growth of Catholic education in the Tweed when he blessed St Joseph's College's new $2.4 million multi-purpose centre and St James Primary School's new $1.4 million extensions in Banora Point yesterday.

Member for Page Ian Causley officially opened the centre, a project which included $689,800 in Federal funding, on behalf of Education Minister Brendan Nelson.

The balance of the building costs for the centre was funded by St Joseph's parish community with support from the Lismore diocese.

The project includes a performing arts space, kitchen, classrooms, chapel, PE facilities and an assembly hall.

The primaryschool project, fully funded by the parish community and diocese, includes classrooms, library extension and multi-purpose centre.
