A new outdoor space will be established in the heart of Brighton Secondary College, thanks to the Allan Labor Government.
Member for Southern Metropolitan Region Ryan Batchelor MP and Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos MP announced that Brighton Secondary will share in more than $9 million to create facilities suitable for students of all abilities, as part of Round nine of the Labor Government’s Inclusive Schools Fund (ISF).
Brighton Secondary is receiving nearly $300,000 through the Fund to create an Oasis with sensory and multipurpose space where students can connect with nature, decompress and build relationships with other students.
Since its establishment, around 420 creative projects have been funded through the transformational program, helping build inclusive learning spaces and specially designed accessible playgrounds – ensuring all students are able to fully participate, develop and succeed in Victorian government schools.
