"Sensational day for Yarrawonga" - Member for Murray Valley Tim McCurdy.FIONA BLICK May 1, 2014 3:18pm
After more than ten years of planning and lobbying, Yarrawonga College P-12 has been rewarded with a state government funding commitment of $7.616 million.
Deputy Premier Peter Ryan travelled to Yarrawonga to make the announcement with Member for Murray Valley Tim McCurdy.
Mr Ryan said it was an important time in the school’s history and, from his point of view, “my ultimate purpose is to give these students the best possible opportunities”.
Mr McCurdy said it was a “sensational day for Yarrawonga”.
“I have been involved with this project since I was a Moira Shire councillor and I am just as excited as the staff and pupils,” he said.
School council president Carolyn O’Dwyer said the words ‘thank you’ didn’t really express how grateful she was.
“We don’t see allocations of this sort of money in our region very often, however our children are certainly worth every penny,” she said.
College Principal Kim Stewart said the announcement would enable the college to fully complete stage two of development.
“I want to thank Tim McCurdy for his advocacy, Minister Ryan for his support and funding commitment and Carolyn O’Dwyer on her tireless work for the school as a whole,” Ms Stewart said.
For full details of the announcement see next week’s edition of the Yarrawonga Chronicle.
