WOADY YALOAK PRIMARY SCHOOL TO RECEIVE FUNDING BOOST

Released on the 24th of October, 2005

Patron Senator for Ballarat, Judith Troeth today announced the Australian Government Grant of $850,000 for the new building project of Woady Yaloak Primary School.

Senator Troeth said that the grant would be used for the construction of the replacement school at Sebastopol-Smythesdale Road, Ross Creek campus which will include general purpose classrooms, library, staff and student amenities.

“The new facilities will help the school to provide the best possible learning environment for students in the area,” Senator Troeth said.

In 2005, $249 million will be allocated nationally to capital projects in state schools with over $59 million going to Victoria.

“The Australian Government’s Capital Grants Programme for Schools is designed to improve the educational outcomes of educationally disadvantaged students,” Senator Troeth said.

“This project involves a significant amount of funding - an indication of the importance the Government places on developing and maintaining school infrastructure.

“The Australian Government will provide an estimated $33 billion in direct funding to schools and school students over the period of 2005-08. A key element of this funding package is some $2.5 billion for school capital works and infrastructure projects over the next four years, including and additional $1 billion committed during the 2004 election,” Senator Troeth said.

“I congratulate the Woady Yaloak Primary School community in receiving such a grant and look forward to seeing the results of the project,” Senator Troeth said.
