The state government’s announced they’ll fund the Echuca Specialist School’s move to the Twin Rivers Campus if they get re-elected in November.
16.7 million dollars will be invested to create a new Echuca Prep to 12 special school and extra facilities for the Twin Rivers primary school itself.
Yesterday’s announcement from education minister James Merlino also included 850 thousand dollars to finalise planning of the move with construction expected to begin next year.
It means the school will get the new facilities they've been crying out not matter the result of the state election after the coalition confirmed last month they'll provide the funds to move the Specialist School from High St.
Students have been dealing with sewerage coming up through the floors in recent months with school management having spent the last decade calling for new facilities.
