STUDENTS at Tatura Primary School now have access to state-of-the-art educational facilities, with a $2.5M purpose-built permanent modular building officially unveiled last week.

The new building replaces one demolished at Easter last year and includes new services, staff room, staff toilets, student toilets, reception area, offices, classrooms, library and canteen. Also as part of the development, the school was able to install a much larger courtyard space for outdoor learning and play.

Tatura Primary School principal, Susanne Gill said, “The last time something like this happened was when the Building the Educational Revolution buildings were rolled out across the state in 2010.

“Fourteen months ago we got a call out of the blue to say we were going to receive the funding for the building, which was a big surprise.

“We were able to have a big say in the design and fit-out of the building.

“The building was delivered in July 2018 and the fit-out and completion occurred up until November when the students and staff moved in.

“This means we now have state-of-the-art facilities and it’s pretty amazing to be able to offer this to our students.”

Labor Member for Northern Victoria, Mark Gepp said, “We’re ensuring local students have the best facilities, our classrooms have the best teachers and every child is given every chance to succeed.

“Local families can now enjoy great new facilities at Tatura Primary School.”
