THE state government announced its biggest ever spend on state education – yet there were few winners in the Ballarat region.
Just over $2 million has been promised to go towards an upgrade ageing facilities, ensuring students have the modern spaces they need to learn.
The funding will be used to upgrade the school’s science, technology, engineering and maths area.
Ballarat Secondary College Wendouree Campus will receive $3 million, while Bacchus Marsh College will also receive $3 million.
Member for Buninyong Geoff Howard said the funding would ensure students had the best access to quality education and learning.
“I know Mount Clear College is doing great work – and this funding will help it become even better,” Mr Howard said.
Across Victoria the state government pledged $924 million to upgrade schools in poor condition, build new schools in growing areas, provide emergency relocatable classrooms to alleviate short-term pressure and remove asbestos from school buildings.
