MS TIERNEY (Western Victoria—Minister for Training and Skills, Minister for Higher Education) (09:55): Last week I joined two school communities in celebrating fantastic upgrades to their buildings and facilities. Brauer College in Warrnambool and Mortlake College P–12 can now experience an up-to-date education environment. $4.4 million has enabled Brauer to move to excellent new specialist spaces and equipment. This will make such a difference to students in the arts, music, food technology and textiles. Mortlake College P–12 received funding of $2.1 million for an architect-designed modular building and a prior refurbishment of the library and classrooms. Both colleges now have a modern feel, and there is no doubt that new facilities always give everyone a great boost. I could see that the Mortlake and Brauer students and staff alike are already enjoying their new workspaces in great regional schools.
