A brand new library and learning centre will make the Colac Secondary Collage a better place than ever to learn and grow, Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney MP said today.
Opening the project today, Ms Tierney said the Brumby Government contributed just under $4.5 million to the new facilities.
“Colac Secondary College students deserve to go to a school with modern facilities where they can learn to their full potential,” Ms Tierney said.
“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,
“The Library and Learning Centre is not only a wonderful facility for the students at Colac Secondary, but is an asset for the whole community.
As well as the Brumby Government’s contribution of just under $4.5 million, the Colac Otway Shire contributed over $1.14 million, the federal government contributed $272,000 and the school community contributed $69,000.
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.
“The Brumby Government is currently very busy rolling out the biggest school building program in the state’s history that will see every Government school rebuilt, renovated or upgraded.
“Education continues to be the Brumby Government’s number one priority,
“I would like to congratulate all those involved in this project, in particular the families whose enormous support is integral to the ongoing success of this school and this community,” Ms Tierney said.
