Ardmona students now have better classrooms and school facilities thanks to the Victorian Government.
Victorian Minister for Education James Merlino and Member for Northern Victoria Mark Gepp visited Ardmona Primary School to open its $593,000 upgrade, which includes significant restoration work to the school’s historic 1880s buildings.
Several classrooms underwent structural restoration and modernisation including a complete replacement of the entire roof structure, along with new floor finishes, doors to the flexible classroom, as well as wall and ceiling linings.
Damaged weatherboards were also replaced and a fresh coat of paint has brightened both indoor and external spaces.
The school opened in 1881 and offers specialist education programs including performing arts as well as cultural studies in First Nations Curriculum to its 18 students.
The Victorian Government has invested $5.6 billion to deliver more than 1,400 school upgrades, supporting over 7500 construction jobs for Victorians.
The Victorian Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and a quality education.
