WANDILIGONG Primary School’s 1986 heritage building is set to see improvements via almost $100,000 in funding confirmed by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD.
The school’s funding was granted after an independent assessment of all Victorian government schools was undertaken in 2012, which provided a clearer picture of the state of school buildings and infrastructure.
The report also provided Wandiligong Primary School with an individual and comprehensive review of its individual facilities to enable it to better prioritise its maintenance funding.
School principal Sue Manning said the funding would be used to help repair a leaky roof, and yard areas, to make the school more user-friendly to work and operate.
“The majority of the work will be done to our main block A, and it will enable us to get the building up to a better position,” she said.
“Main block A is our heritage listed building and the roofing definitely needs to be replaced as it’s leaking.”
