Seymour College’s Building the Education Revolution buildings have been officially opened by Federal Minister for School Education Peter Garrett.

The science centre, hydrotherapy pool and junior games hall have been operational for some time, but Mr Garrett last week was given a tour of the facilities as well as the Trade Training Centre.

He then spoke in the Performing Arts Centre to some students and members of local groups connected to the facilities, before doing the honours with Federal Member for McEwen Rob Mitchell.

College executive principal Tim McCartin particularly thanked the Seymour Heated Indoor Pool committee for its donation of about $82,000 to the hydrotherapy pool.
