Mildura West Primary School tops the funding priority list for schools in the electorate at the next budget.
The school needs funding to complete its master plan, having late last year completing renovations and construct a new learning hub made up of two classrooms and breakout spaces.
Those upgrades were completed after the school received $1.8 million in the 2018-19 State Budget, but the priority now is to receive the funding needed to complete all the upgrades.The Victorian Government has made significant school infrastructure investment in recent years including in the 2020-21 Budget with $10.5 million for Hopetoun P-12 College and $5.937 million for Merbein P-10 College. Those two colleges will now be able to complete much-needed and overdue upgrades which will make a significant difference to the quality of learning for their students.
It will also be exciting when the new Wycheproof kindergarten opens – slated for the first term of 2021.The modular building is being constructed at Wycheproof P-12 College on the corner of Mount and High streets and has received significant funding from the Victorian Government as well as Buloke Shire Council and Federal Government.
Wycheproof kindergarten will include a 22-place room, long daycare rooms for 12 children and a maternal child health consultation room.
VICTORIANS will welcome the easing of some COVID-19 restrictions but the government needs to move as quickly as it can to provide clarity to parents about the staggered return to classroom learning.
