Kids cool with BTV

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

Stu­dents at Lard­ner Dis­trict Pri­mary School will have ac­cess to a com­fort­able learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment year-round thanks to a do­na­tion from Be­yond the Val­ley mu­sic fes­ti­val.

School prin­ci­pal Kelly Hal­l­i­day said the do­na­tion would al­low the school to buy three new air con­di­tion­ing units and up­grade an­other to en­sure com­fort for the school’s 55 stu­dents and staff.

“That will be three class­rooms and an of­fice,” she said.

“And they’ll be re­verse cy­cle, so we’ll have heat­ing too.

“Com­fort­able chil­dren make for com­fort­able learn­ing.”

Be­yond the Val­ley has sup­ported the school in the past, with a pre­vi­ous do­na­tion as­sist­ing the school’s read­ing pro­gram.

Be­yond the Val­ley di­rec­tor Chris­tian Ser­rao said the fes­ti­val com­mit­tee was al­ways look­ing for new ideas to sup­port the com­mu­nity. “We plan to be here for a long time,” he said. “And here we’re just down the road, so it makes sense to sup­port the school.”

Be­yond The Val­ley is an Aus­tralian mu­sic fes­ti­val that be­gan in 2014, and runs an­nu­ally over the New Year’s Eve pe­riod.
