The Andrews Labor Government is investing more than $7.5 million into Victorian not-for-profit organisations to deliver innovative educational programs that enrich the learning experience of students across the state.
Labor Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney today announced Warrnambool Art Gallery (WAG) is among almost 80 organisations who will receive a share of the funding, which will help deliver student learning programs that are not normally available in traditional classroom settings and teacher professional learning programs to support the delivery of programs that enhance student outcomes.
The programs involve excursions or incursions delivered face-to-face or online by some of Victoria’s strongest education organisations.
The Warrnambool Art Gallery “Explore, Learn and Create” program sits alongside highly respected organisation such as Geelong’s Back to Back Theatre Inc, Ballarat Astronomical Society, Horsham Town Hall, Musica Viva, Mathematics Association Victoria, Parks Victoria and other organisations across arts and culture, health and wellbeing, and STEM.
Programs align with one or more of the Victorian Curriculum learning areas and may include excursions or incursions that can be delivered face-to-face or online across metropolitan and/or regional areas.
Funded programs will support all Victorian students with exciting ways to learn, whether they excel at school or whether they are at risk of disengaging.
