A new building will make Rokewood Primary School a better place than ever to learn and grow, the Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney MP said today.
Opening the project today, Ms Tierney said the Brumby Government contributed $1.2 million to the new facilities.
“The Victorian Government has invested $1.2 million in this new building with a $620,000 contribution from the Commonwealth and a fantastic $17,000 contribution from the community.
“The new building is well designed and environmentally sensitive and it certainly complements the lovely school grounds.
“Rokewood Primary School students deserve to go to a school with modern facilities where they can learn to their full potential,” Ms Tierney said.
Ms Tierney said the project involved building three new learning studios, large project spaces and administration area.
“Under the Brumby Government’s Rural Replacement Program, Rokewood now has a brand new school.
“This is a great outcome for the school community and is an example of what’s happening in schools across Victoria to create 21st century learning environments,” Ms Tierney said.
Ms Tierney said the Brumby Government was committed to providing all Victorian students with a great start in life in high-quality schools equipped for modern teaching and learning practices.
“Under the Victorian Schools Plan we are rebuilding, refurbishing or extending every Government school across the state as part of a comprehensive investment program.
“Education continues to be the Brumby Government’s number one priority,” Ms Tierney said.
