Baltara School is one of twenty specialist schools across Victoria that will have their classrooms upgraded and there will be more support for its students, as the Andrews Labor Government continues to make Victoria the Education State.

It was announced today  that $400,000 from the 2016-17 Victorian Budget will go  to upgrading the school’s ageing buildings, ensuring students have the modern classrooms and spaces they need to learn.

This funding is part of a $155.8 million budget boost to ensure special needs students get the opportunities they deserve.

”I am delighted that the Government is committed to supporting our specialist school. I know that when students are positively engaged with learning it gives them a chance for a better future.”
