Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - LOCAL LIVING -

Neerim Dis­trict Sec­ondary Col­lege will re­ceive up­grades to its roof­ing and walk­ways af­ter re­ceiv­ing a grant for $94,317 un­der the state gov­ern­ment’s planned main­te­nance pro­gram.

One of five schools in Gipp­s­land to re­ceive fund­ing, Neerim Dis­trict Sec­ondary Col­lege re­ceived the grant for spe­cific build­ing and in­fra­struc­ture up­grades.

Other schools in Gipp­s­land to re­ceive fund­ing un­der the pro­gram are Won­thaggi Pri­mary School, Fos­ter Sec­ondary Col­lege, Grey Street Pri­mary School (Trar­al­gon) and Koo wee rup Sec­ondary Col­lege, where works are al­ready un­der­way.

The work at Neerim Dis­trict Sec­ondary Col­lege is one of more than 100 build­ing works planned un­der the state gov­ern­ment’s planned main­te­nance pro­gram, which is pro­vid­ing $24 mil­lion in fund­ing to schools for spe­cific build­ings and in­fra­struc­ture up­grades.

Mem­ber for East­ern Vic­to­ria Har­riet Shing said the state gov­ern­ment is in­vest­ing $2.5 bil­lion in bet­ter class­rooms, up­graded fa­cil­i­ties and new schools across the state.

“Vic­to­ria’s school build­ing boom has de­liv­ered more than 1000 school up­grades and 56 new school projects across the state, sup­port­ing al­most 5000 con­struc­tion jobs for Vic­to­ri­ans,” she said.

“There’s a lot of work un­der­way to im­prove school build­ings and in­fra­struc­ture across Gipp­s­land and it’s great to see the up­grade at Koo Wee Rup Sec­ondary Col­lege has al­ready be­gun.

“These im­por­tant up­grades will en­sure that more school com­mu­ni­ties through­out Gipp­s­land get the sup­port and fund­ing they need, and will help more stu­dents to get the most out of their ed­u­ca­tion.”
