Students at Brauer College and Warrnambool College will enjoy more modern buildings, as the Andrews Labor Government continues to make Victoria the Education State.
The Member for Western Victoria Gayle Tierney MP today announced $4 million for Brauer College and $4.6 million for Warrnambool College from the 2016/17 Victorian Budget will go towards an upgrade to the schools’ ageing facilities, ensuring students have the modern spaces they need to learn.
The funding will go towards modernisation and upgrade works for school buildings.
It’s the latest step in making Victoria the Education State, where every student gets the chance to fulfil his or her potential and can access a school with great facilities.
Building, fixing, upgrading, and modernising Victoria’s schools gives our students and teachers the learning environment they need to achieve their best.
Throughout the state, hundreds of new school infrastructure projects are underway, just like the ones about to start at Brauer College and Warrnamboool College.

Quotes attributable to Member for Western Victoria Gayle Tierney
“I know Brauer College and Warrnambool College are doing great work – and this funding of $4 million and $4.6 million respectively will help them become even better.”
“I had the opportunity recently to visit both schools and meet with Jane Boyle, Principal of Brauer College and David Clift, Principal of Warrnambool College.
“I was fortunate to see a number of potential projects at both schools and can see that the money will be well utilised.”
“Both schools are a credit to their community and it is clear that the staff is doing an amazing job, but there needs to be some work done at both sites, and so I am sure that the Andrews Labor Government’s allocation of $4 million to Brauer College and $4.6 million to Warrnambool College will be well utilised and well received.”
